This week a member of ours expressed some fears associated with her upcoming scheduled c/sec.  There are times when members rally around moms and take the time out of your busy mothering lives to respond to these posts and for this I am so grateful and appreciative. You share words of support, encouragement, offer assistance and information.  Sharing is caring and I love how much you are caring for each other.

Pregnancy is considered to be the period of the most extensive and rapid growth of the mammary gland.  Changes occur the fastest during the later states of pregnancy, which coincides with the most rapid period of fetal growth.

Next country on our breastfeeding tour is England.  Records show that the pattern of wealthy married women hiring wet nurses in France, was quite the same in England also.  Historians came to this conclusion based on the stark difference in birth rates between English upper and working class women.  The wealthy women gave birth every year and the working class women had longer intervals with births about every 3 years.  While not 100% accurate, women who were wet nurses experienced a suppression in ovulation, which made wet nursing a relatively reliable contraceptive.  I find this so interesting as the wealthier women, who should have enjoyed a healthier life were not so healthy largely because of the number of pregnancies and births they had which were commonly between 12 - 18 by the time they were less than 40 years old.  These high number of pregnancies was very hard on their bodies. They spent a better part of their married life pregnant, while the lower class women who were busy nursing babies and having fewer babies, enjoyed a healthier life.

My guest today does not know this, however, I met her many years ago, in a friends home on Long Island, NY.  The Birth Partner was a fairly new book and my childbirth educator friends and I were just learning about what it means to be a labor support person and were learning about this new profession called a Birth Doula.  We were a small group of less than 10 moms and we were suppose to meet for about 2 hours and we wound up talking until the wee hours of the morning.  She really left us with a good impression and I have followed her career ever since.

I am repeating Episode #43 as we lead into Season 2 that starts next week on Monday, October 10th, 2016
 
There is so much misinformation given about the early days of breastfeeding that I was motivated to do a show that I titled:  Normal newborn breastfeeding behavior.  Moms are being given very specific advice about the early days of breastfeeding.
