In honor of
Black Breastfeeding Week,
we are thrilled to offer a FREE workshop created and facilitated by Aphrica Farrow, who is a full-spectrum doula in Austin, Texas, a midwifery assistant and currently studying to become an IBCLC.
why a specialized
breast / chest feeding
Here’s an overview:
- Despite the benefits offered through bodyfeeding, rates of chest/breast/bodyfeeding between Black infants and birthers are lower compared to other ethnic groups in the US
- Within the Black community, there are higher rates of infant mortality, high rates of diet-related disease, a lack of diversity in the lactation field as well as food deserts within many Black communities
- Historically, there is a lot of generational trauma when it comes to breast/chest/bodyfeeding within the Black community largely resulting from slavery, when Black women were forced into the work of being wetnurses and often not being able to breast/chest/bodyfeed their own children
- In addition to significant historical factors, current sociocultural practices and beliefs serve as barriers to breast/chest/bodyfeeding within Black communities
- These factors and many others have contributed to the current state of bodyfeeding within Black communities
For these reasons and many more, we wanted to offer this vital workshop in an effort to continue to expand the conversation, and to provide different perspectives and tools.
