    This is a guest post by Athena Raypold from The Salty Almond, you can read her article on her website too. Athena is a freelance writer based in Edmonton, AB, Athena loves telling stories: about motherhood, marriage, entrepreneurship, and food. Writing about her culinary adventures at The Salty Almond, Athena's work has also been featured on Eat This Poem, The Edmomton, and A Practical Wedding. Breastmilk, for many babies, is their first food and the act of breastfeeding is a nurturing, wholesome one, with as many struggles and challenges as cooking a meal (sometimes more, sometimes less). I wanted to write about it here because it's currently a huge part of my life, it impacts how I eat and it's currently the only way my son eats. ...

  • Bonding with a Breastfed Baby - How Fathers Do It

    Breastfeeding is one of the most bonding parts of motherhood.  We get all the perks of extra cuddles, being a sense of comfort and that special bond with our new (and older) babies.  One of the most discouraging myths for new parents is that basically partners of a breastfeeding mom are despised by newborns and will have to wait until the toddler years to really bond with their child.  With a little effort, father's can feel close and bonded with their little ones and the new mama. We recently asked our Facebook community how their partners bonded with their newborn baby.  We had a great response.  It is so wonderful to see the different ways men share in the bond during these precious early...

  • Breastfeeding: Can having a doula help?

    Breastfeeding is the normal continuation of pregnancy. It is a physiological process provided by nature. Sometimes it can be difficult and ongoing support before, during and after pregnancy can be very useful. Studies have also shown that success is more likely with the support of spouses, peers and health professionals. The presence and continued support of a doula during pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period also contributes to breastfeeding success. Results from a combined study * shows that the presence of a doula reduces the number of interventions and contributes holistically to improve breastfeeding. Here are some statistics:  In general, women have an easier, smoother delivery when a doula is present A 50% decrease in the rate of caesarean section A reduction of...
