LISTEN AGAIN: Your Breastfeeding Questions Answered | Jada Shapiro
Jada Shapiro founded Boober
“Boober is a platform where expectant parents and new families can find all of their pregnancy to postpartum care providers like birth, doulas, postpartum doulas, lactation consultants, and now mental health therapists who specialize in pregnancy to postpartum.” – Jada Shapiro
Jada and Georgie talk through all of the topics around breastfeeding, including:
- How women need better information about breastfeeding
- Mental health issues for women in this season of life
- What lactation consultants do
- The options around breastfeeding
- Reasons women may not produce enough breast milk
- When babies need chiropractic care
Boober provides information and resources for women who are struggling with or want to learn more about lactation. In New York City, women can use this platform to get same-day lactation consultants.
“There’s a real personal struggle or sense of defeat if they can’t fully feed their baby at the breast, so for the lactation consultant to be able to give permission to say, “If you need to use formula, donor breast milk or pump that is okay.” Let’s get the baby fed so that we can work on the steps
For some people, babies just latch right on, and it’s really easy. On Instagram we’re seeing a lot more now of the hard stuff. We’re starting to see that more. I think that people are getting more confident or comfortable sharing that this was really hard.” – Jada Shapiro
