Voices of Black Mothers

“I loved the closeness and the cuddling that happens when breastfeeding. Nursing became so easy once I had the hang of it. I thought of it as almost being lazy…at least I didn’t have to fuss with bottles! I always had a way to soothe my baby no matter where we were, which was extremely convenient. I never worried about nursing in public, and did so whenever necessary and wherever my baby and I were comfortable.”

“I found myself in a weekly support group where I was the only African American. I had to get over the uncomfortable feeling, because these women were giving me the support I needed.”

“Now, Isabella is 6 months old and thriving! She loves to nurse and it’s such a special moment for us! I tell the world that my African-American baby has been breastfed! I want everyone to know that they can come to me for questions or concerns, and that Black women do breastfeed!”

“I hope that through this movement, more Black women will have access to breastfeeding education, preparation classes, and continual breastfeeding support. Many women who breastfeed live a certain lifestyle, and the resources linger amongst very specific mommy groups.”

“If we are to reach the masses—particularly in underserved and poverty-stricken communities—we need to not only empower women to embrace breastfeeding, but to also see to it that they have the resources to make it through the potential difficulties. I am wishing all the mothers out there, beautiful, easy, and successful breastfeeding journeys!”
