Allison got emotional today. There's so many fears about this virus in our community, in the lactation world, and especially with our private clients (Yes, we've had COVID-19 positive clients.)

In this live video Allison made last week on the Successful Breastfeeding LLC Facebook page she addresses what WE are most concerned about because of this virus. And it's not what you'd expect.
I anticipate we're facing trauma that will last generations from some of the practices in place from this virus. Allison talks about some really heavy things in this video, but it's something all of us need to hear. Because this could affect someone you know, someone you love, or maybe even you.
So, take a few minutes to hear her out, and then let me know your thoughts. Also stick through to the end to hear about what we are doing to provide some relief for anyone who is having a baby soon, or has a newborn now.

Successful breastfeeding is making a difference.
These quarantine procedures are impacting the lives of new families, the mental health of birthing people, and the lifelong developmental impact a separation would have on a newborn baby.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is making recommendations based on long standing evidence, and looking at what is best for us all during this global pandemic. Thankfully, their recommendations are still supportive of breastfeeding.
Sadly in America, our leaders don't seem to be on board with following the global recommendations. Allison addresses this well in her video, and also shares info with you on how you can set yourself up for a Successful Breastfeeding Journey despite these uncertain circumstances we are faced with for this unknown amount of time.
There is hope, and we are taking action now with our free resources we have created for you, including our completely free LC in Your Back Pocket program.
All of this uncertainty sucks, but we're here for you. We are in this with you.
