Evergreen Perinatal Education: Talking with Pregnant Women About Feeding Their Babies

Description: 

At one time all babies were breastfed. There were no options. The education about breastfeeding would have occurred as children observed their mothers, aunts, and neighbors feeding their babies. There would have been an assumption that this is how all babies are fed, and no question about that wisdom. But, in the last century, the greed of profit in the baby food industry, combined with wars taking women out of the home, and women, themselves, challenging their roles as stay at home mothers have changed the picture of parenting children. Now women see options, and these include choices about how babies are born, and how they are fed. Although most women develop strong feelings about breastfeeding before they are even pregnant, many will be strongly influenced by the information they receive from healthcare professionals. It is up to healthcare professionals to make sure women have the information they need to make the very best choices.
