Welcome back and get ready for this juicy episode today! I polled all of you on IG and got almost a hundred questions about breastfeeding! It seems all of us have real questions about breastfeeding, how to set ourselves up for success, the down low on pumping, how to keep milk supply up, things that prevent breastfeeding success, tips to avoid mastitis and more! Whether you are a mama or planning to breastfeed in the future, I think everyone will learn something interesting in this episode.

About today’s guest Andrea Haskin:

I’m a mom of 2, a former middle school English teacher, certified lactation counselor and peer breastfeeding counselor with La Leche League. in upstate NY. I believe parents have been led astray by the modern medical-industrial system and the multitude of opinions and information available and have dampened the ability to mother biologically and instinctually. I want to encourage mothers to take back that instinctual power in order to be less dependent on the systems that took away their authority. I created Instinctual Mothering Because I want every new mom to know that they don’t have to listen to anything anybody else says about how to raise their own baby.
