We all know how wonderful and beneficial breastfeeding is for mothers and babies. However, mothers don’t all experience the same breastfeeding journey. For some, it’s straightforward and natural, while others experience a lot of struggles and even pain. Some women are surrounded by a lot of encouragement and support, and other women aren’t. It can be very discouraging when breastfeeding doesn’t happen as easily as you hoped, but we’re going to talk about it — the benefits of breastfeeding for mother and baby, the history of breastfeeding, the root causes of disparities in breastfeeding, and so much more.

Today, we are privileged to have Dr. Cameual Wright join us on our show. DR. WRIGHT IS an OB-GYN by trade, the ​​Vice President and Market Chief Medical Officer at CareSource. She leads clinical initiatives to ensure vulnerable populations receive accessible, affordable, high-quality, and high-value healthcare. She is a passionate advocate for the care of women and children and health equity.

Today Dr. Wright is here to discuss everything about breastfeeding. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently updated its guidelines around breastfeeding, now supporting continued breastfeeding of a child until two years old or older. As the U.S. continues to face a shortage in infant formula, and with these updated guidelines, it’s of the utmost importance for mothers to be informed about breastfeeding. We’re grateful to Dr. Wright for sharing informative and helpful information on this episode.
