My Breastfeeding Article in the UN Chronicle

World Breastfeeding Week 2010 is drawing to a close.  The focus has been on the Ten Steps of the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative which aims to have health professionals and health care facilities promote and support breastfeeding.

In August of 2009, I was honored to have my article Breastfeeding: the Mother in Charge published in the UN Chronicle.  (click on cover)

It poses the following question…

When cultural anthropologists of the future look back on this moment in human history, what will they find? Will they see a tipping point in breastfeeding advocacy where we were able to successfully support and preserve breastfeeding?

The Ten Steps can help move us in the right direction.   Ultimately, our actions must speak louder than our words or policies. We need to teach mothers the fundamentals of how to achieve a deep, pain-free  latch.   Conscious Breastfeeding will put them in charge of their breastfeeding outcomes.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, some other time. We are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the change we seek.”
~ Pres. Barack Obama
