So I have another Instagram page dedicated to breastfeeding, the purpose of this is to give advice and tips to pregnant and breastfeeding parents.
This Page is different to others out there because the goal is to give informative Advice and Tips as a Lactation Consultant. There are many pages out there posting endless pics of couples and babies but mine is strictly for breastfeeding and a way of communicating with me the IBCLC.
For all breastfeeding mammas please feel free to DM me your breastfeeding questions and concerns there and I’ll be more then happy to help 😘
Do forget to LIKE, SHARE and FOLLOW both blog and Instagram Page.
Remember: The more engagement this post gets the easier accessible it is for another breastfeeding mum to stumble upon as it will show up in her feed.
❤️ So tell a friend to tell a friend ❤️

Congratulations on setting up the Instagram. Also got to check out your web page Please add a variety of ethnicities every where you post. Here at least black women breast feed at much lower rates than white women. Don’t know if that is true in England or not. My husband did a book about meal time and was sure to include lots of different looking kids, though we had to arrange to take some of the pictures ourselves since they weren’t easily available on line.

I agree although much harder to source more of a variety of breastfeeding photos of families from different ethnicities that are free usage photos. Hopefully that will be something that will change in the near future, more mother’s I have the opportunity to support, hopefully I can source more photos. In regards to the breastfeeding rates. England has one of the lowest in general tbh regardless of ethnicity. XX
I am appalled. I had no idea. Here breastfeeding is very normal. Laws protect it in public despite some people taking offense.
I feel it has a lot to do with NHS funding and having the right knowledgeable staff in place like lactation consultants to support women from pregnancy and throughout their breastfeeding journey. Lactation Consultants are not as common here like in the US and Australia. Midwives do a lot of the breastfeeding support and advice with minimal knowledge and time due to the pressures on the NHS .
We have laws here protecting breastfeeding in public but without the right support being implemented from the beginning, poor mamas are struggling.
