In summer 2018 I was one of a few women to be asked to take part and also be a guest speaker in the UK's first ever black breastfeeding week event which was also streamed live across Facebook and to America.
The topic I chose to talk about was breastfeeding as a black mother and supporting breastfeeding as a black woman and the difficulties encountered due to lack of diversity and representation in mainstream literature and posters as well as online and how we can combat the problem
I have also written articles on breastfeeding for the Breastfeeding Network ( BFN ) and for the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers ( ABM ) to highlight the lack of representation within the mainstream of images and literature of women of colour breastfeeding /chestfeeding and how breastfeeding organisations and professionals can help change that and how they can better support people of colour
