Katrina Pavlik (Board Chair), founder of Breastfeed Chicago, M.Ed., postpartum doula, certified lactation specialist. “My dream for Chicago is that it will become the most breastfeeding-friendly city in the country. Not only will new moms get the help and support they need from their health care providers, but they will benefit from an extensive breastfeeding-support network. Moms will be seen breastfeeding their children anywhere, anytime… and it will be considered a normal, natural way of feeding our children.”
In 2011, Katrina Pavlik created a closed Facebook group to invite
people to start a conversation about breastfeeding in Chicago. Within six
hours, it had grown to 400 people. "I saw a need for a community that
could discuss how to make Chicago more breastfeeding friendly. From the Facebook group, we expanded and added the Breastfeed, Chicago! blog and resource list.

www.my-natural-motherhood-journey.com I will be speaking with Mackey Roberson, who is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, about how to breastfeed your newborn. We'll be covering topics such as failure to thrive and nipple soreness. Here's a little about our guest:
I was born into a military family in the mid seventies with career driven parents who chose to bottle feed me because that’s what everyone else did. Hailing from a family of formula feeding women, the odds were not in favor of me becoming a breastfeeding warrior. But I am. Today I look for every opportunity to engage in discussions with prenatal women about their feeding options. I encourage and support Moms who choose to breastfeed. When I take off my “professional titles”, I’m a wife, long term breast feeder, baby wearer, homeschooler, co-sleeper, Christian and a myriad of other things. My husband and I share in the joys and triumphs of raising 8 breastfed children. My children are 17,15,13,12,8,6,and my nursling is 15 months old. My life goal is to see breastfeeding become the norm.

You get what this show is about? This is a call in show to ask about the timeline of anything you wanna know and we're gonna try to answer everything to the best of our ability.
It never hurts to ask right? Let's see what we get out of this.
Having twins is a very special occurrence since it doesn't happen all that often. What happens when you have twins but one, or both of them, have a congenital heart defect? How does that affect other children in the same family? Will you be able to breastfeed your twins? Today's guests can answer those questions since both are moms of heart-healthy children and children born with critical congenital heart defects. Tune in to hear Kathy Kolodzinski and Roxanne Montalvo-Tsai tell their stories about having twins in the congenital heart defect community.
What are Educational Units that we have now added to our certification process (in replace of electives)?
In many professions, after obtaining their degree, a person is must do continuing education on an ongoing basis in order to maintain their status in that profession. While we do not require our students to do anything after certification, at The Healing Arts Learning Organization we value the need for continuing education. We value it so much that we have used elements of it and incorporated it into our certification process as - EDUCATIONAL UNITS! An Educational Unit is a "point" you will obtain by attending other trainings that will help grow your birth business. One Educational Unit is granted for every two hours of additional learning you participate in. (The total number of educational units required for certification can be found on the Doula Training page. A student can use a maximum of 6 educational units per topic to count toward certification.)
Use this opportunity to help complete your education in areas you feel you need more knowledge, obtain training in areas that will help provide additional income streams that compliment your birth business or to gain knowledge in new topics of interest that will make you a well-rounded doula after certification. Don't have previous business experience? Didn't breastfeed yourself? This requirement is a great chance to take courses that will not only customize your training to your unique needs, but also qualify toward your certification! Search your area to find what might be available, as this will be a great opportunity to make connections in the community.
Let's use this broadcast to brainstorm some ideas of what you can use as an Educational Unit!
We've all seen them: moms breastfeeding their children in a public place. Are they discrete about it? Are they covered? Are they letting it all hang out? Is the breast purely a sexual object, or is it only to be used to feed your baby? This week, Dr Pauline and Catherine tackle this (often sensitive) subject. Did you know the Bible actually has quite a bit to say about the breast - both sexually and for nursing? Listen LIVE to hear what God's Word has to say about women and breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding in public has been a hot topic in the birthing and parenting worlds. Often breastfeeding in public is treated as taboo and breastfeeding mothers may be asked to leave stores or businesses. When did breastfeeding your baby become taboo or controversial? Does the lack of acceptance of public breastfeeding affect breastfeeding rates? According to the CDC, less than 80% of babies are ever breastfed, with rates dropping to less than 50% by age 6 months. In many parts of the world, breastfeeding rates are much higher and public breastfeeding is widely accepted--why not here in the U.S.? What can we do to normalize breastfeeding so that woman are free to breastfeed their babies whenever and whereever they need to? What can we do to promote the diversity of breastfeeding, whether it be culturally or even in the ways women choose to breastfeed (on the breast, pumping, tandem, etc.)?
Vaness Simmons, photographer and founder of the Normalize Breastfeeding Awareness Campaign is on the show tonight to discuss how she's out to postively impact breastfeeding in the United States and what you can do to help. Find out more at http://normalizebreastfeeding.org/.
