Episode 159: Military Birth and Breastfeeding (Epilogue)

Tonight, Dana and Laura spoke to military moms who shared their stories about birth and breastfeeding while being in the military. Author of book Breastfeeding in Combat Boots Robyn Roche-Paull, whose Facebook page continues to share and post photos of military moms nursing, shared the lowdown on breastfeeding policies in the branches of the military. Military moms La Donna Jackson and Emily Shomo shared their experiences receiving military care during and after pregnancy. Finally we talked to Amy Oyos, the coordinator of the Mom2Mom Double Duty program which works with active duty moms breastfeeding around the world.
