The Breastfeeding Dilemma: how do we encourage breastfeeding and support women in doing so, without subjecting those who choose not to breastfeed, or are unable to do so, to shame and guilt with potentially devastating consequences?
We explore philosophical mistakes in the way we talk and think about infant feeding choices and the impact pressure to breastfeed can have on maternal health and the experience of new motherhood.
To join in,
(1) Listen to the Introduction to the Virtual Workshop (recording available here, transcript available here.)
(2)Have a look at the abstracts, recordings, and links to papers which can be found here. (You can look at as much or as little as you wish but I'd suggest beginning by listening to the Overview of Talks.)
(3) Look at the discussion questions, available here.
(4) Take part in the discussion in the comments section below and follow along as others comment. I'll be here to respond from 10-11am and 4-5pm (and hope lots of other people will be too), but if you can't make it then, you are still very welcome to post and I will get back to you.
Note: If you are joining us for the scheduled discussion times, you may want to do Steps 1-3 ahead of time.
