WV LACTATION SUPPORT SURVEY
Yes, West Virginia women DO breastfeed! In an effort to improve lactation support and services in the state we are asking everyone who currently does any kind of breastfeeding support, education or provides consults to please answer the survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5CZSVHH
Once the survey is finished, we will compile a list of lactation counselors, consultants, specialists, doulas, La Leche leaders, etc to make a directory for WV mothers to utilize for help when they need it (you will be asked if it is okay to post your contact information) We will also use the survey results to try and increase support in areas that are lacking services.
I have had three boys and breastfeed all of them for as long as they will let me. My two older sons weaned themselves at about 11 months and I’m still nursing my youngest who is 3 months. I never thought about if I would or wouldn’t nurse my children, it just seemed so natural. It’s a beautiful thing that our bodies are capable of providing babies with everything they need to survive and grow. Just simply amazing! I can’t help my heart from melting when I look down and see that little baby staring up at me smiling as he nurses.
