Resources

These are resources I’ve compiled and have used myself as a parent or lactating person, shared with clients, or learned from. I refer to the instagram profiles listed often. However, it does not mean that I completely agree with everything that they post. Sometimes there are other ways to phrase things or use words in our own language to speak on different topics. Use your intuition and trust that you know what information will serve you and your circles best.
