The Evidence Is In: Breastfeeding Benefits Children, Mothers and Economies

"Increasing optimal breastfeeding (including early initiation, exclusive breastfeeding for six months and continued breastfeeding) could save nearly 820,000 lives - 87 percent of which are infants under six months of age - and add hundreds of billions of dollars to the global economy each year."

The case for breastfeeding: what skeptics miss when they call it overrated

"This backlash misses a crucial point: that the public health push for breastfeeding is designed to eliminate health disparities between the rich and poor and create, at least in early infancy, a semblance of equality in health. Breastfeeding promotion is working and shouldn't be curbed because middle-class parents are tired of hearing it."

Breastfeeding promotion is tremendously beneficial for women — especially low-income women.

Today, We Fight Back

Planned Parenthood does so much more than provide legal abortion services.

"When I testify today, I'll tell members of Congress about Dayna Farris-Fisher, one of our patients in Plano, Texas. When I met her a couple weeks ago, she told me that Planned Parenthood saved her life. In 2013, her husband lost his job and their health insurance. Not long after, Dayna found a lump in her breast. The only two clinics she could find that would take a patient without insurance or much money had two-month waiting lists, so Dayna came to Planned Parenthood for a breast exam. Our clinician of 21 years, Vivian, guided her through the process of follow-ups and referrals to make sure her treatment was covered. She called Dayna frequently to check on her as she entered treatment. Dayna is now cancer free and just started a new job -- where she'll wear a pink shirt today."

We know exactly what Planned Parenthood does for millions of people in this country, and we will not let those committed to ending abortion access use fraud and deception to cut millions of people off from high-quality preventive care.

The Unseen Consequences of Pumping Breast Milk

One of the first of many challenging decisions that parents wrestle with. Take heart mom, you are all doing your best! ###xx


As Jill Lepore noted in a 2009 New Yorker article: “To follow a doctor’s orders, a woman who returns to work 12 weeks after childbirth has to find a way to feed her baby her own milk for another nine months. The nation suffers, in short, from a Human Milk Gap. There are three ways to bridge that gap: longer maternity leaves, on-site infant childcare, and pumps. Much effort has been spent implementing option No. 3, the cheap way out.”

Exclusive pumping is becoming popular among American moms, seen as a way they can “have it all.” But the work/health consequences are rarely discussed.
