Encore Are You Inclusive of the LGBTQIA Community? Think Again.

Happy World Breastfeeding Week! Join in celebrating with all who protect, promote, and support breastfeeding throughout the globe! Yet, as you celebrate, recognize that there’s work to be done. This year’s World Breastfeeding Week theme calls us to focus on gender-equitable strategies for breastfeeding families everywhere. So how can we do that?

Join Marie and her guest, Stephanie Brown, IBCLC for a lively discussion that addresses how clinical professionals exhibit helpful and unhelpful actions for the LGBTQIA community. Begin to become aware of how your attitude, your language, and even your clinical environment can undermine rather than empower parents, beware of how “othering” can creep into your messages, recognize how issues such as continuity of care and consent and body autonomy impact care. And, get Marie’s free handout at to help you take actions to facilitate gender-equitable parental social protection.

      Just sitting and listening to a podcast or reading a book consuming lactation-focused information is not the same as earning continuing education credit. (CERPs or other types of continuing education.) I do have some learning programs that make use of a podcast or other types of media as part of the content needed to meet specific objectives. If you’re interested in this particular topic, I do have a learning program that offers CERPs here.
