The Mother Flipping Awesome Podcast
Season 3, Episode 18:
Mother to Mother to Mother
On this episode, Abigail interviews...
Today I am speaking with Debra Page - grandmother, mother, lactation consultant - and host of the Inspiredmom.com Summit, available this July 2021. As a registered nurse and board-certified lactation consultant, Debbie Page has spent the last forty years working with moms and babies in hospital maternity units, doctors’ offices, visiting nurse associations, and her private practice - all while also raising her own kids and mentoring new and aspiring lactation consultants. Today she is here with us!
This week Abigail speaks with lactation consultant Debra Page about the emotional wisdom we mothers pass down to each other through the generations. We also discuss the rather incredible fact that we can pass this gift of motherhood to one another even if we don't get it from our own moms. *Trigger warning* This episode contains some intense and personal details regarding medical issues and breastfeeding.
