Last week I got the opportunity to talk with Jamie Oyugi, founder of Mama*cue, a teen breastfeeding support program in Philadelphia. She is getting ready to do big things in 2013 by helping teen moms set and meet their breastfeeding goals. In our chat, we discussed how YML can partner with Mama*cue and spread the message.
And just as I told Jamie, I am here to help. There are so many breastfeeding barriers for teen mothers and the fact that through Mama*cue, other young parents will be the ones helping them navigate the challenges, well, that is incredible. Stay tuned for more updates as we work on our partnership!
In the meantime, check out the video below, where Jamie interviews one of my favorite bloggers, Gloria Malone from Teen Mom NYC, as she describes what it was like to breastfeed in high school.
