I don’t know who needs to hear this but a pediatrician is not a lactation consultant. Go see a lactation consultant.

I feel so official now!

[06/29/19]   Working on going in network with the major insurance companies. It's a lot of paperwork and forms and phone calls. It's important to me that I accept as many insurances as possible, but they don't make it easy.

I'm proud to announce that a decade of hard work has paid off, and I have earned the International Board Certified Lactation Consultant credential. I can now practice as an IBCLC in my community, working to help more families meet their breastfeeding goals.

“Fabulous new pre-print from the @felicitydavis2 lab looking at #mammary mechanobiology - I think everyone can appreciate this amazing video of theirs, showing the lactating gland contracting in response to #oxytocin #WomenInSTEM https://t.co/DMakWVTCCH https://t.co/fewlH654vo”

Pretty picture, but not at all a good representation of breasts. https://www.facebook.com/Mamamilkmaven/posts/2324330714301382?sfnsw=cl

Thanks @Maa Jet for original post.

Have you seen this image doing the rounds? Sadly, pretty as it is, it isn't accurate! This image is based on work done by Sir Astley Cooper 160 years ago, and actually isn't all that representative of the work that he did either! If you are into sciency stuff you can read more here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1571528/

So why is it important to call this out? Because understanding how our breasts work is important, especially when we are using them for their primary purpose. Most women have less milk ducts than this, originally it is thought women had 22 ducts. Now we know it is around 9, some women have more, some less. This makes a massive difference to women who are considering things like breast surgery. Milk ducts are not arranged in a pretty flower shape, they are more like the intertwined roots of a tree. And they can even be up under your armpit! This is important because when breastfeeding it matters that we know we can get blocked ducts up under our armpit and therefore treat them.

Women's bodies are amazing. We've been told all our lives the main function of our breasts is to be pretty but they can still be amazing WITHOUT being pretty like flowers.

💜Accurate information matters💜
