Overcoming Adversity, from Moms of Babies with Congenital Heart Defects

Mothers of healthy, full-term infants can tell you about the challenges and barriers they sometimes face in breastfeeding. (We talk about them on this show every week!) But mothers of children born early, ill, or with a health condition face additional challenges for which they are seldom—if ever—prepared. Join host Marie Biancuzzo and special guests Anna Jaworski, Nancy Sands, and Amy Gerrish Bennett for discussion of the particular challenges faced by mothers who breastfeed children with congenital heart defects. How is breastfeeding different for these mother-baby dyads? What sort of supports do the mothers need to succeed in meeting their breastfeeding goals? For questions, e-mail anytime.
