It was my summer off work, yet my brain was stuck on repeat reciting the Canadian breastfeeding statistics and our local challenges over and over and over again...
I lay on my camp bunk, my 3 children sleeping around me. "Lights out" seemed like forever ago, what time was it? Why wouldn't my brain just shut-off?
Like a ninja, trying not to wake children, I reach for my phone. Knowing Melissa is just as passionate about maternal-infant health I type my thoughts and hit send.
That night she did more than understand my late-night madness, she jumped on board and together we "birthed" a Breastfeeding Circle via text message! You can meet Melissa and learn more about the original Breastfeeding Circle here
Since then, we have both relocated and the original Breastfeeding Circle of Grande Prairie is no longer.
However I am still committed to providing breastfeeding support to mothers and mothers-to-be.
I facilitate the Breastfeeding Circle, in Cochrane, on Friday mornings at the Parent Link Centre and offer private Breastfeeding Support on Tuesdays from the Shifra Centre for Wellness.
