Breast is best, local celebrity perspective

11 May 2010 at 11:45 am 1 comment

It’s always interesting and pleasantly surprising to me when celebrities are willing to talk about parenting decisions they are making/have made that are considered “non mainstream” at best and “taboo” at worst. Recently, Gisele Bündchen, who, as you may recall, had a homebirth here in Boston, wrote a lovely pro-breastfeeding post on her blog for mother’s day. I always appreciate it when anyone speaks out about the benefits and beauties of breastfeeding, but it’s always amazing to me when someone with such a high profile is willing to talk about a subject that can be so polarizing to folks.

    Employers can support by complying with and adhering to laws that protect breastfeeding, respecting the maternity leave and the right to two half an hour breaks for breastfeeding during the workday until the baby is six years old, and creating conditions for breastfeeding or collecting and storing breast milk.

    now THAT’s extended breastfeeding support
