In the spirit of Black Breastfeeding Week (8/25-8/31), My Darling Doula will host a series of mini photo shoots, to promote visibility, awareness, and education within the black community, around the benefits of breastfeeding.

Why is this project important?
The "black" experience is as varied as the skin tones in which we come, and so is the breastfeeding experience. Together, we can dispel myths surrounding black breastfeeding AND increase the awareness of breastfeeding, in our vulnerable communities. Black Breastfeeding Week allows us to be a part of the culture shift. Who's with me?
