Everyone has an opinion, and they’re usually pushing it as “fact.” Breastfeeding advocates sing a litany of benefits that breastfeeding provides. Critics insist that breastfeeding is difficult and ties you down. Others imply that you’re a bad mother if you don’t breastfeed. With so many message and feelings, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, confused, guilty, or just plain crazy! Join radio host Marie Biancuzzo, RN, MS, IBCLC of Born to be Breastfed and special guest Dr. Paige Hall Smith, PhD, MSPH, founder/co-director of the Breastfeeding and Feminism International Conference as they discuss why, despite all the pressure, you should not feel guilty.
