Historical Trauma, Racism and White Privilege: The Barriers to Breastfeeding Success

Too often when discussing barriers to breastfeeding there tends to be a focus on education, poverty, and familial support. However, when we truly look at the causes of health disparities and inequities it is racism and discrimination that are at fault. For many of us, this can be a difficult realization and conversation to have. In this session, Ms. Goldhammer will discuss how Communities of Color are impacted by intergenerational trauma specifically when it comes to attachment and bonding as well as the role that racism and white privilege play in today’s modern day field of lactation. She will conclude with ways in which we can create meaningful impact and further advance racial equity in our field and most importantly in the communities we serve.

This lecture was originally offered at our 2018 GOLD Lactation Conference.
