Show Notes

Join soil scientist Dr. Akilah Martin and me for a lively and very, very important conversation or breastfeeding with Kendra Shelby of Balanced Breastfeeding Solutions. The benefits and importance of breastfeeding cannot be overstated, yet as Kendra reveals during our conversation the rates for breastfeeding in the United States are among the lowest in the world. Worse yet is the rate of breastfeeding in the African American community.

Kendra is determined to change the rates of participation in breastfeeding in the United States in general and the African American community in particular. Tune in for our lively and informative conversation with Kendra Shelby of Balanced Breastfeeding Solutions.
