Queen's Milk- Krissy

August 29, 2017

There is a significant racial disparity in Breastfeeding rates in the United States and babies are dying because of it. From historical and health care perspectives, the inequality of Breastfeeding support for women of color is tragic.

 

Black Breastfeeding Week is not about excluding white women or women of other races, it is about intentionally including black women. We are actively creating a space for ourselves by declaring our own stake in the breastfeeding conversation.

 

All nursing parents need help and support to become successful in meeting their breastfeeding goals, and too many of us have been left out of the picture. Supporting Black Breastfeeding Week means we support a cultural shift in the African American community to view breastfeeding as the cultural norm.
