I’m interrupting my series for the online doula interview to share a post I wrote in response to yet another dust-up about public breastfeeding and advocacy.
After a post went up from a Babble blogger that shamed mothers who breastfeed without a nursing cover, and piece over at Slate that indicated the simplest way for us to move forward as women in society would be for lactivists to care less and the market to over better nursing covers, I was invited to write a guest post for Annie at PhD in Parenting. I hope you will visit me over there and join our conversation about misogyny, the female body, judgments and the mommy wars.
- What is my doula’s relationship to my other caregivers?
- What do we do if we decide we need some privacy during our birth?
