Lack Of Funding Threatens To Close Respected Toronto Breastfeeding Clinic.
An excerpt from the article:
Kernerman said along with a lack of consistent breastfeeding education across the province, many women still feel uneasy nursing in public, and that needs to change in order to improve breastfeeding success rates.
"Breastfeeding, like walking, is natural, but it's a learned behaviour. And so when your child goes and falls the first few times you're not going to say, okay, that's it, it's off to crutches for the rest of your life. No, you're going to pick that child up and you're going to learn how to walk with that child and that child will learn to walk with you," she said.
"And it's the same with breastfeeding. We need to learn, we need to learn by watching women around us breastfeed and we don't see women breastfeed because women are afraid to do it out in public."
