Many African American communities are "first food deserts" (first food = breast milk) - a term used to explain the lack of access to breastfeeding education or support. Without this support, we are setting black women up to fail. We need to transform these areas so women have access to the help they deserve.

While there are many universal barriers for breastfeeding, there are some unique cultural barriers as well for black women. Black women were used as wet nurses during slavery and forced to breastfeed, black women have a lack of multi-generational support and black women often experience stereotyping in their own communities.

Lactation professionals and breastfeeding leadership/advocacy is dominated by white women. Unfortunately, this may perpetuate the common misconception that black women don't breastfeed. The lactation professionals (though well-intentioned) may not be aware of or know how to navigate the cultural barriers African American women experience with breastfeeding.

Black infants are dying at twice the rate (and in some places, nearly three times the rate) of white infants. We're seeing these high rates because of black infants being born too early and with low birth weight (causing a host of other issues). According to the CDC, increasing breastfeeding rates for black women could decrease the infant mortality rates by up to 50%.

Black Breastfeeding Week was created because of the large racial disparities in breastfeeding rates. The most recent CDC data shows that 75% of white women initiated breastfeeding versus 58.9% of black women.

When you're trying to conceive and/or have experienced pregnancy loss, it's normal to feel a lot of different emotions at the same time. And some days are harder than others. If you can, just take it one day at a time and allow yourself to feel each emotion.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Does this feel especially relevant to you right now? Our new normal means we're spending so much more time at home with our kids (with less breaks) and we're all missing the socialization and activities that we used to be able to do. It can be draining for everyone - kids included! How do you handle the hard moments during this time?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"“***NOT A PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT***⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It might be gross to some but I’ve held onto this test because it’s the only thing I had/have from the babe we lost. ⁣⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We were just a few days out from our first ultrasound, and never got a picture or even got the see them at all. ⁣⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I tucked it away after our loss and every once in awhile I come across it, and each and every time, it just pulls at my heart strings. ⁣⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Even though it’s just an inanimate object, and I know it doesn’t change or erase anything or any feelings I have, I can’t quite separate it all yet. ⁣⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Maybe I will eventually, but right now I just can’t bear the thought of throwing it out.” — Credit: @_amandanoel13⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Have you experienced pregnancy loss? How did you cope? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
