A Lactation Room is a dedicated private room other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and interruption from the public, which is used by nursing mothers to express breast milk by breastfeeding or breastpumping. (Also often called a "Nursing Room", "Nursing Mothers Room", or "Breastfeeding Room")

Setting up a lactation room in a general working environment is quite simple and easy. The basic prerequisite is an appropriate space set aside solely for lactating mothers (breast pumping or breastfeeding) and shielded from public view (meaning door must be lockable and any windows must have curtains or blinds). This space can be newly built or previously existing space converted and repurposed as a lactation room.

Beyonce performed during the 2017 Grammy Awards, pregnant with her twins, in a large ensemble of dancers and elaborate costume design. Apparantly her performace shocked and confused everyone. 

I wasn't confused at all. Fresh off the heels from a very artisticly rendered video for "Lemonaide" it was clear the performance at the Grammys were a continuation of her story. It was in honor of motherhood and the breath taking beauty and transformation mothers go through.

Two nursing mothers are suing Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Iowa because they claim the insurance company denied their claims for breastfeeding support from properly trained specialists. 
 
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court, alleges that Wellmark worked around the policy by failing to provide a list of approved professionals in its network who are specialists in breastfeeding care.  This oversight, intentional or not, forced many nursing women to pay out-of-pocket for services that should have been covered.
 
Federal law requires insurers to provide the coverage.
 
What do you think?  Was your breastfeeding support properly covered?

Fergie’s music video for her song “M.I.L.F.$. has some hot mamas in it, including Kim Kardashian West and model Chrissy Teigen with her new baby girl, Luna. 

Teigen opened up to PEOPLE magazine earlier this week in Southampton, NY, where she was hosting a party.  When Kim Kardashian West asked her to be in the video (just weeks after giving birth), her reply was, “Absolutely, Kim, what days are you shooting?  I’m in.”

We know that the Affordable Care Act of 2010 helped working moms who nurse and/or pump breast milk at work.  Last month, the U.S. Department of Labor announced further protections that will begin in December and there’s a big piece of the protection that will help working mothers:  we have the right to break time and we should receive a private space to pump milk that is not a restroom.

This shouldn’t be huge news, but we still celebrate it.  The Affordable Care Act added the breastfeeding/pumping requirements into the Fair Labor Standards Act, which is the outline for workplace law in our country.  As part of the requirements, employees who are able to receive overtime (under Federal law) are also able to get breaks and privacy for pumping.

An special image of a breastfeeding baby is going viral as her mom seeks to nourish and bond with her baby during a difficult time. Baby Xenia has stage 3 brain cancer and mom Anastasia Pittis wanted to share with other moms how important breastfeeding has been for her as her child undergoes chemotherapy. 

After posting her image on Breastfeeding Mama Talk she had no idea her image would go viral, nor could she imagine all the love and support she would receive from moms. It's incredibly heart breaking Xenia's family has had to deal with such a trying ordeal but so many moms chimed in about their own stories of having a child with cancer. Although, it is not common for children to be born with cancer it is treatable.

Priya Nembhard and Kim Harrison have revolutionized the breastfeeding industry by creating the world’s biggest and most complete App that helps moms find, rate and share nursing room locations to breastfeed and breast pump. When they first launched the Moms Pump Here Nursing Room Locator App in 2015 with Version 1.0 they only had 500 nursing room locations in the U.S. Now, thousands of locations later the App is impacting moms in 7 countries and will provide more services though the launch of Version 2.0 (AKA Moms Pump Here Pro on Google Play) in May 2016 at the New York Baby Show! The Nursing Room Locator App is currently available on  iTunes, Google Play Store, and Amazon. 
 
Because no mom should have to breastfeed of breast pump in a parked car or in a dirty bathroom, Priya and Kim want to reduce the frustration and isolation nursing moms often feel. Moms Pump Here has upgraded the Nursing Room Locator App by integrating a system with ratings and reviews plus a user interface with an easier, look, feel and functionality.  In comparison to the official hard launch in 2015, the 2016 2.0 Version of the Moms Pump Here Nursing Room Locator App has more robust features and thousands more nursing and breastfeeding friendly locations to choose from. In addition, adding greater user engagement with rewards, such as giveaways. Moms may download and install the Moms Pump Here Nursing Room Locator App via iPhone, Android Smartphone, Tablet, or iPad.

The birth and postpartum period are a very sacred and delicate time for a mother. When preparing for pregnancy and birth, pregnancy literature and medical healthcare workers tend to focus on the the physical aspect of pregnancy, while the emotional and mental well-being of the mother often takes a backseat. Though it is vital to focus on ensuring physical comfort during pregnancy and birth, as a mother is experiencing a life-changing journey, her emotions and spirit will also need nurture and care as well.  
 

As a doula, it is part of my mission to ensure that my clients take steps to ensure that in addition to their physical and nutritional care, that they give the same amount of attention to their mental and emotional bodies. In doing so, they are increasing their changes of being in a balanced and harmonious state as they carry their child, and for the birth itself. Additionally, these actions during pregnancy can have a significant impact on the well-being of the baby, and can also reduce the likelihood of postpartum depression developing for the mother once the baby is born.
 
While there is no way to properly predict whether or not depression will develop during pregnancy or in the postpartum period, there are things that can be done during and after pregnancy to reduce the likelihood of both from happening, and to ensure that mama feels good in her spirit, her mind, and body! 
 
Below are some insights and actions to take during pregnancy and during the postpartum period to reduce mental and emotional health imbalances and postpartum depression. 
 
Food & Nutrition
Food has a direct impact on our emotions and mental health, and during and after pregnancy especially. It is important that you maintain a healthy and balanced diet during this time. The following foods are recommended to ensure a balanced emotional state while also providing your body with the necessary nutrients: eggs, legumes, leafy greens, whole grains (brown rice, quinoa, oats), berries, bananas, organic fish and meats, nuts, root vegetables, cultured foods, mushrooms, and avocados. Drink plenty of water to ensure that you stay hydrated throughout your pregnancy and have the energy you need. 
 
Exercise

Staying active during and after your pregnancy releases endorphins in the body that increase your overall well-
being, reduce your stress and anxiety and make you feel good. Consider activities such as a walking and prenatal yoga, and any other light exercise that feels good to your body. The idea is to stay active and moving, but not to over do it!
 
Sleep
Both during and after you give birth, sleep will be of the utmost importance. Sleep deprivation leads to exhaustion, and this is one of the main causes for postpartum depression. Many people say it’s not possible to get sleep with a new born, but incorporating a few practices may support you in your effort to get more sleep. A rule of thumb is to always sleep when the baby sleeps. Even if it’s just for twenty minutes; those twenty minutes will give you the re-boost you need to continue caring for the baby when the baby wakes up. Also, sleep if/when someone else is available to watch the baby. Which leads easily to the next point…
 
Ask for help
During the pregnancy and particularly during the postpartum period, don’t hesitate to communicate to your friends or family that you may need some additional support. Use your community, your village, any support you have. If you have a live-in partner, let your partner know if you need additional support in any area. If you can, pump in between feedings so someone else can feed the baby while you rest or shower. Set up a meal train on www.mealtrain.com; this allows family members and friends in your network to sign up to bring you meals on a specific day; this is especially helpful during the postpartum period! Whenever it is feasible for you, ask others to help you with housework, or anything else you may need support with. You can also consider hiring a doula in your area for both your birth or postpartum; and if finances are an issue, there are usually volunteer and low cost doulas available to support you.
 
Breastfeeding Support
It’s not talked about often, but difficulties with breastfeeding are another leading cause of postpartum depression. If you give birth in the hospital, be sure to ask the Lactation Consultant as many questions as possible about breastfeeding, and get the support you need before leaving the hospital; if you have the resources, you can also hire a Lactation Consultant to come to your home. Another option is to contact the local La Leche League chapter in your area (in the U.S.) to attend free breastfeeding meetings with a Lactation expert and other new moms. But also remember that there is a chance that you won’t be able to breastfeed your baby no matter what you try. This is common and not a reflection of you as a mother. Luckily there are other ways to provide nourishment for your baby if breastfeeding is not an option. 
 
Express your feelings
Pregnancy, birth, and postpartum can bring up a range of emotions. It is a natural occurrence and it’s imperative that you have an outlet to talk about what you’re feeling. Whether it’s with your partner, friends, a therapist, a doula, or a mother’s support group, be sure and talk through whatever has come up for you. It is healthier than holding it in. 
 
Placenta encapsulation pills
Studies have found that the nutrients in your placenta can help to reduce postpartum depression. A placenta encapsulation specialist takes your placenta after birth and makes it into pill form for your consumption. The benefits are amazing!
 
Stress reduction & relaxation
Both during pregnancy and after birth, as much as possible, reduce the amount of stress-filled situations and people in your life. Do activities to help you reach a calm and peaceful state, such as daily meditation, deep breathing, spending time in nature, and anything else that brings you calm. Consider prenatal and postnatal acupuncture, energy healing treatments, yoga, and massage as well. Try and reduce the amount of negative consumption whether it be the television, movies, newspapers, etc that you absorb. Keep yourself surrounded by positive energy, goodness, and love whenever possible!
 
 

By Jessica Shortall, author of Work. Pump. Repeat: The New Mom’s Survival Guide to Breastfeeding and Going Back to Work

I hear it all the time, on Facebook breastfeeding support groups and from working mom friends: “Your employer is legally required to allow you to pump at work.” And I always think to myself, “Great. Time to open up the can of worms.” Because while I hope that things will continue to change for the better, your legal right to pump breastmilk at work is far from simple. In fact, some working mothers in America have no legal right to do so. In the crazy world of bringing your baby’s food source to work with you, informed is best, so let me bust some of the most prevalent myths:

...

The Affordable Care Act, implemented by most insurers on or after August 1 2012, The ACA made free breast pumps available to new moms through their health insurance, a plan intended to take away one of the biggest hurdles for a new mom. And for the most part, moms who have taken advantage of this new baby bonus have been satisfied.

The average age of weaning in the U.S. is three months, according to the National Association for Child Development. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding for a minimum of a year, and the World Health Organization suggests two years.

Are you a "kind" of mom?  There are many kinds of moms:  crunchy moms, nursing moms, helicopter moms, formula moms, full-time working moms (FTWM), part-time working moms (PTWM), stay-at-home mms (SAHM), work-at-home moms (WAHM), corporate moms, PTA moms, etc.  We find ourselves attracted others that we deem as similar to ourselves within these groups we think we fall into. 

I belong to a few on-line mom groups where I often get advice and support for raising my children.  I can bounce off my concerns, ideas, and worries about cooking meals, handling tantrums, juggling schedules and overall parenting woes.  The groups have been very helpful to me as I transitioned from Expectant Mom to New Mom to Worried Mom to Mom of 2 under 2 and then on to Moms of School-Aged Kids.
