Black Maternal Health Week takes place every year from April 11 –17. The month of April is recognized in the United States as National Minority Health Month – a month-long initiative to advance health equity across the country on behalf of all racial and ethnic minorities. Additionally, we are joining dozens of global organizations who are fighting to end maternal mortality globally in advocating that the United Nations recognize April 11th as the International Day for Maternal Health and Rights.

The campaign and activities for Black Maternal Health Week serve to amplify the voices of Black mamas and center the values and traditions of the reproductive and birth justice movements. Activities during BMHW are rooted in human rights, reproductive justice, and birth justice frameworks.

Black history month is world history. Breastfeeding is part of our history. It was established in the motherland, a tradition passed down from our ancestors and still continues through millions of Black breastfeeding families today. We are here and will reclaim what was stolen, our tradition. #thrivelactationcollective

The IBCLC certification is important and challenging. Each year hundreds of prospective IBCLCs spend countless hours studying, doing internships and school so they can become International Board Certified Lactation Consultants. This certification is important and very needed. It means more mothers will have access to qualified Lactation Consultants in hospitals, medical offices and private clinics. We need more Lactation Consultants to represent the world we live in and with each new certification session this happens. CONGRATULATIONS 👏 TO ALL THE NEW LACTATION CONSULTANTS. If you didn't pass this time around, please don't give up.

It’s World Prematurity Day!

Breastmilk offers preemies wonderful benefits to help them grow and develop properly. Preemies are at a higher risk for medical problems than full-term babies. Your milk is the only food that contains antibodies and other substances that protect your baby from disease.

The premature milk is higher in protein and minerals, such as salt, and contains different types of fat that she can more easily digest and absorb. The fat in human milk helps to enhance the development of the baby's brain and neurologic tissues, which is especially important for premature infants.

Thrive celebrates preemies and the special milk made just for them!

For today's #takeover, we welcome Stacy-Ann Louie, IBCLC, CD Owner of Tent Birth and Breastfeeding Service. Her office is located in beautiful downtown Duluth, GA. You can reach her at www.tentbirth.com or 678-750-3121. Welcome! "My decision to breastfeed my first child was instinctual. Breastfeeding is a beautiful experience for parents and children. Nonetheless, it can be complex and sometimes difficult to navigate alone. Having the support of an experienced and supportive Lactation Consultant to provide prenatal education, guide you through any immediate concerns and provide support is invaluable to mom and baby’s health. I became a Lactation Consultant because I want to provide the highest level of care to mothers and babies and provide culturally competent care. Nonetheless, breastfeeding in the US is a bit complex and messy if we really admit it. The first thing expecting mothers are met with is self-doubt. This self-doubt is created by a system that pushes manufactured breastfeeding over prenatal breastfeeding education and support by dedicated lactation consultants. The reality is breastfeeding is a relationship between two people who are learning to breastfeed and if a mother and baby are struggling in some way to breastfeed, they should have immediate community-based breastfeeding care. As a Board Certified Lactation consultant (IBCLC), I am clinically trained and licensed to work within Georgia. My clients can benefit from an in person consultation in my Duluth office located in Gwinnett County, I can travel to your home for home consults and provide virtual consultations. Additionally, our local support groups are a unique blend of peer-to peer support with my expert input. Group classes are the perfect place for you to learn and make connections with other moms like you. All services can be booked online at www.tentbirth.com. Find me on Facebook @tentbirth, on IG @tentbreastfeeding and we welcome your calls too. I am proud to be a part of Thrive Lactation Collective. We believe that every woman deserves to have equal access to quality lactation care for herself and her infant and we are committed to providing care that represents the needs of the black community. You can find out more at Thrive Lactation Collective. I am also a Certified Maternal Mental Health Facilitator and immensely proud to offer a Women of Color Maternal Mental Health Support Group. Black women continue to increasingly be affected specifically by depression and anxiety and other mood disorders. I am committed to supporting black women live full lives and not simply make it. You can sign up for the group at https://www.tentbirth.com/bookings-checkout/virtual-mental-health-support-group." #BBW2020 #ReviveRestoreReclaim #blacklactationconsultants #blackwomenbreastfeed #prenataleducation #tentbreastfeedingservices
