Normalizing Breastfeeding

Celebrities are on a mission to help normalize breastfeeding. Models Gisele Bundchen and Miranda Kerr posted photos on instagram, breastfeeding their babies. Stars like Alyssa Milano, Liv Tyler and Pink say they want to make sure women feel comfortable feeding their babies.

Even the Minnesota Vikings are on board. They’re the first NFL Team to have lactation suites for breastfeeding moms, recently installed in the new US Bank Stadium. August is National Breastfeeding Month and it’s why Dr. Lori Bethke from Entira Family Clinics stopped by to talk about the Physical & Emotion journey.

She says most providers will encourage breastfeeding the first few minutes after delivery. But if nursing is difficult for mom and baby, it’s important to talk to your doctor and seek out a lactation specialist.
