On tonights show I will be talking to Emma Kwasnica the Montreal-based mother and breast-feeding activist, organizer of human milk for human babies.  Human Milk 4 Human Babies (HM4HB) is a global network represented by community pages for each state, province, and/or country. These pages provide a space where families in need can connect with women who have milk to share.

HM4HB affirms that human milk is the biological norm for human infants and children. HM4HB does not support the sale of human milk. In light of the horrendous disasters in Japan, we are seeing how formula can fail a society when clean water is not readily available.

Tonight we will be discussing the importance of SEEING other women nursing and how it can help NORMALIZE/MAINSTREAM nursing your baby. The more we hide it away[breastfeeding], classify it as obscene, shame mothers into covering up while feeding, and encourage women to retire to "private" rooms in order to breastfeed the baby, the less we see of it in public, and the less and less people are comfortable with the very idea of nursing in public. This is the sad reality, in this pathologically hyper-sexualized (yet sexually repressed...) North American culture of ours.

Please call us with your questions as this is a very important topic!!!!!!
