Podcast: Breastfeeding in the military

May 30, 2011

In honor of Memorial Day we’re very happy to share this podcast interview with Robyn Roche-Paull, author of Breastfeeding in Combat Boots.

Robyn is a US Navy veteran who breastfed while serving on active duty as an aircraft mechanic, and is a lactation consultant and La Leche League leader.  Her work focuses on helping mothers on active duty continue to breastfeed after returning to work.  You can find more information about breastfeeding while in the military at her website and Facebook page.

Tanya spoke with Robyn about special challenges mothers in the military face when it comes to breastfeeding, stories of mothers making it work under challenging circumstances, policies that impact mothers ability to breastfeed while in the service, and some practical advice for preparing  to pump at work.
