Breastfeeding is so much more than feeding a baby. Societal and cultural norms and expectations may make nursing your baby even more of a challenge. The good thing is, you don’t have to do it alone! Black and Latched aims to create a space where black/afro identifying nursing mothers/parents can bring their babies, share stories and exchange wisdom and information all the while being led by Elizabeth Pérez, a Lactation Support Provider and experienced nursing mother.
This bi weekly meet up aims to raise awareness and increase the rates of initiation and duration among black nursing mothers. It is open to parents of newborns, older babies and even 4 year old nurslings! Black and Latched also welcomes pregnant moms interested in learning more about breastfeeding and hearing firsthand from nursing parents.
*We use the term parents interchangeably with mothers to be inclusive of how one identifies during this time as well as an open space for queer and trans families.
What Is Sliding Scale?
We offer all of our community offerings and some private sessions by Sliding Scale.
We believe everyone is entitled to heal their wounds so they can thrive; we also believe that the wellness and healing practitioners deserve to make a living wage. In order to make this possible, we ask you to pay as much as you can, so those who might not be able to pay as much can still receive their healing session - this is the idea behind 'paying it forward'. We are all in this together, and we choose to do our best to take care of one another.
Thank you in advance!
