The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation article on the politics of breastfeeding identifies why breastfeeding, despite its powerful effect on the health of nations, is not promoted: leadership.
In our small way, we attempt to lead locally on breastfeeding. That’s why we started Alabama Breastfeeding Medicine and Northeast Alabama Baby Cafe. That’s why we have classes and promote breastfeeding prenatally.
Alabama suffers from poor health and low breastfeeding. We hope to help in this area. We hope you lead in your area with your influence.
