Yes, we live in times of fear and anxiety—much of which is beyond our control.

But there is one place where fear should not exist. There is one area, where, as women and mothers, that we should insist that fear not enter—that is in the precious act of feeding our babies.

Women who wish to breastfeed have a right to guilt-free, confidence-building information and support.

And it’s time that we DEMAND it of everyone – including, and especially, from those claiming to support mothers.
