Sweet Peas, Pods & Papas: All About Birth, B@@bs & Babies
I am happy to kick-off our 2016 Breastfeeding Edition of Q&A with SPB with a very special announcement fromThe Milk Spot, a local lactation support resource, located in Phoenix, Arizona
Central Arizona now has a milk donation and outreach center, where mothers who are interested in donating excess pumped milk can be connected to a resource that provide precious liquid love to sweet peas that are most at risk. Now mothers in central Arizona can help families with babies that are receiving hospital NICU care.
It is our pleasure to introduce you to the Babymoon Inn, one
of the Phoenix area local birth centers. We have enjoyed getting to know the
director, Julia Hall, through her support of The Bradley Method® events, as
well as other local events where we have been vendors together. We have had students from our classes birth
there, as well as receive postpartum support through Babymoon’s various
breastfeeding and family support meetings offered throughout the week. The
support meetings are open to all families in the community, regardless of
whether or not they birthed at Babymoon Inn.
This month, I would like to introduce you to The Milk Spot, a
growing lactation clinic conveniently located in Central Phoenix. The Milk Spot offers support groups and
breastfeeding classes, as well as private consultations with the gold standard
in lactation care, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
Big thanks to Michelle Hottya, IBCLC, for taking the time to
do our interview so we can give you the INSIDE LOOK into The Milk Spot!
are The Milk Spot care providers?
We had a crazy Saturday planned: a horse show for our oldest at 8:00 am out in Apache Junction, the Arizona Birth Network Conference near the airport, a family birthday party in Glendale, and then the Blossom Birth Center Open House in Phoenix. And yes, I did write correctly - all of them on a Saturday.
Thank goodness we found a way to do it all! The horse show was fun and the family party was great. What inspired me, though, was attending the AZ Birth Network (AZBN) conference and the Open House at Blossom Birth Center.
