Midwifery care isn’t just about pregnancy and birth, it’s also about postpartum and feeding support. Student midwife Mel was by this client’s side for most of labor, and now Mel is using their CLC experience to help with some feeding issues. You can support Mel on their journey via their Venmo @melken85

Shirt: It Takes a Village Birth DFW
It’s September, and we’re kicking off this month’s BHBI fundraising campaigns in our favorite shirt from It Takes a Village Birth DFW (follow them - their t-shirts are the BEST!) in honor of #blackbreastfeedingweek (yes, we’re late, but babies come when babies come!)

Due to systemic racism, nursing rates amongst Black birthing people are substantially lower than in white birthing people. Black birthing people are much more likely to be offered formula for their babies, too.

Part of what we do as community midwives is provide extensive follow-up care and lactation support in the postpartum period. All families deserve access to the support they need to successfully meet their own feeding goals for their babies!

This work is ongoing, and your continued support helps ensure that families with financial barriers to community-based care are able to receive it! Visit the link to make a contribution to the Black Home Birth Initiative fund:

Put down the dishtowel.​​​​​​​​
Leave the laundry in the basket.​​​​​​​​
Order take-out for dinner.​​​​​​​​
Iron clothes tomorrow.​​​​​​​​
Let the kids pack lunch on their own.​​​​​​​​
Clean the living room tomorrow.​​​​​​​​
You can't pour into an empty cup. You have to remember to take a break and take care of yourself. I promise, things will be waiting for you when you are ready.​​​​​​​​
Binge watch some TV, go out with a friend, spend time playing with your children, take a nap.​​​​​​​​
It is okay to take a break.​​​​​​​​

Breast/chestfeeding vs. Formula feeding.​​​​​​​​
As a parent, you may struggle with making this decision. ​​​​​​​​
Only one thing really matters: Which choice is right for you and YOUR baby?​​​​​​​​
Breastmilk is the best nutrition for babies according to the AAP. ​​​​​​​​
Benefits of breastmilk include: ​​​​​​​​
Contains proper proportion of nutrients that your baby needs, including protein, carbohydrates, fat, and calcium.​​​​​​​​
Provides natural antibodies that help your baby resist illnesses, such as ear infections.​​​​​​​​
Easily digested better than formula, so breastfed babies are often less constipated and gassy.​​​​​​​​
May lower the risk of sudden infant death syndrome in the 1st year of your baby's life.​​​​​​​​
May raise your child's intelligence. Studies show breastfed babies have higher levels of cognitive function.​​​​​​​​
Breast milk may even help your child in later years, by reducing the risk of being overweight, and of developing asthma, allergies, type 1 & type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, Hodgkin's disease, leukemia, and lymphoma.​​​​​​​​
It’s always available and it’s free.​​​​​​​​
Women who breastfeed have a reduced risk of breast cancer, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and ovarian cancer.​​​​​​​​
Reasons some use formula:​​​​​​​​
It's convenient. Formula-fed babies can be fed by anyone at any time.​​​​​​​​
It's flexible. You don't have to fit pumping into your work schedule, you can leave formula for your babysitter or day care center.​​​​​​​​
Your partner can help out with nighttime feedings and share that bonding experience with your baby.​​​​​​​​
Scheduling feedings may be easier. Formula isn't digested as quickly as breast milk, so formula-fed babies don't need to eat as often, especially in the first few months.​​​​​​​​
You don't have to worry about what you eat. Moms who breastfeed may have to avoid certain foods that their baby can't tolerate.

While doulas and midwives have often been compared to one another, they are completely different roles. Midwives are professionally trained to provide medical care for both the birthing person and the baby while doulas provide emotional, physical and educational support. While midwives may act as doulas during a birth providing comfort measures, education, and emotional support it is important to know that doulas should never place themselves in the role of a midwife. ​​​​​​​​
