An excellent, must-have breastfeeding resource

Lori’s podcast is by far the most comprehensive, information-packed podcast about breastfeeding that I’ve come across. She is a wealth of information which she shares with humor, kindness and understanding. This podcast is a must for any mom-to-be who hopes to breastfeed as well as current breastfeeding moms and their supportive others.

A remarkable resource

Lori Isenstadt's gem is a warm, thoughtful, encouraging resource for any mom who plans to nurse her child(ren). She is at once gifted in the art of meaningful conversation and knowledgeable not just about breastfeeding, but about all things motherhood. She is dedicated to raising awareness about breastfeeding: how to do it well, how to get help if you need it, and how to educate everyone in meaningful, lasting ways.

I was thrilled to join her show recently, to discuss my debut book on perinatal mental health (Episode 409: When Postpartum Packs a Punch). I had a traumatic birth with my first child in 2009, which spiraled into postpartum depression. One of the saving graces was my decision to nurse him. I had no trouble breastfeeding--a gift, I later realized--and he plumped up from seven to eleven pounds in no time. That I was able to nourish and bond with him through nursing was a mental boost, and a great source of healing.

As Lori aptly says, too often women with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are wrongly discouraged when it comes to nursing. Perhaps they're struggling to get it right, or maybe they get misinformation about antidepressants affecting their children. If they truly want to nurse and are robbed of the chance to do it, this could compound their mood disorder.

I nursed my first child for a nearly a year; my second, for more than two years. My mom nursed me until I was in kindergarten. In the late 1970s, that wasn't popular. Yet her commitment led to a wonderful bond between us. I developed similarly strong bonds with both of my children through breastfeeding. Looking back through the prism of a decade, one of the things I miss most about the baby years is nursing. It's an oasis that stays with you forever.

Whether or not you face a postpartum illness, you'll do well to listen to Lori's show regularly. If you want to nurse, she's the best person to have on your side.
