My guest today is Kimberly Durdin IBCLC, SMW. She has been supporting families as a La Leche League Leader and Breastfeeding Peer Counselor for the WIC program in Brooklyn, NY over 23 years ago and as a doula. She was part of the BLESS Project (Breastfeeding Lactation Education Support Services) at historic Howard University Hospital in creating their first ever lactation clinic providing 24 hour lactation services free of charge for HUH families. Before leaving D.C., Kimberly was named one of the Top Lactation Consultants in the area by Washington Families Magazine.
Kimberly worked as a LC for the Watts Healthcare Corporation 5 site WIC Program after moving to Los Angeles, where she trained staff, oversaw breastfeeding peer counselors, and provided one on one LC care for families throughout South LA. In 2009, She joined the groundbreaking company The Sanctuary Birth & Family Wellness Center, and acted as the Director of Lactation Services and created The Sanctuary New Moms Group, a popular and powerful community space for new mothers that she has lead weekly, as well as conducting childbirth education curriculum for out of hospital birthing families. She taught this class twice a week as well as a program for hospital birthing families she created entitled Enhanced Pregnancy. She has been an LC for twelve years and has begun teaching a 45-hour Lactation Consultant Exam Prep Course, as well as mentoring IBCLC candidates.
Kimberly recently stepped out on her own, attending births as a Student Midwife and Doula, expanding her role as a birth and breastfeeding advocate, speaker and organizer. She has recently signed on to be the “Expecting and New Parent Expert” at WellBaby Center which hosts her weekly Mom’s support group The Mama Tent.
The topic we will be broaching today is the New York Times article by Eleanor Davis: Over Selling Breast-Feeding.

Tonight, I'm going to talk about a photo that has gone viral depicting a young woman in a cap and gown posing after receiving her Bachelor's degree from California State University in Long Beach. What's the big deal you ask? She's breast feeding her infant in the photo. What's the big deal you ask? Hey, I'm the one asking questions around here!
So..yeah, what's the big deal? Well, we'll start out with me telling you my thoughts on this and hopefully get some callers who will share their thoughts. Keep it respectful or it's #click and I'm hanging up on you.
Also, we're going to discuss the two 12 year old girls who attempted to kill their friend....and I use the term loosely... in the name of a fictional character, the Slender Man.
Call in people! Let's get ready to debate!
Cancer continues to touch and take the life of so many people dear to us that Travel Talk decided to do something about it. We have joined the fight against breast cancer!
The statitics are startling.
1 in 8 Women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their lifetime
Every 2 minutes, one case of breast cancer is diagnosed
Every 13 minutes a person loses their fight to breast cancer
On October 23, 2016 - the Travel Talk hosts embark on #PinkCruiseAid Maiden Voyage - we are cruising to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. We are looking for other Warriors in Pink to celebrate and honor. If you would like more information visit Philanthropy Cruise on Facebook.
