Hello Mommas and Mommas-To-Be! This week on the podcast we’re talking about what we like to call “Breastfeeding 2.0”.
Have you ever wondered why motherhood in general and breastfeeding, in particular, attracts so many wives’ tales and generational remedies? From cabbage leaves to drinking beer, many of the “helpful hints” we get for breastfeeding is actually age-old advice passed down through the decades. In a world that is completely dictated by technology, this seems a bit at odds with where we are as a society today. Have there really been no advancements in breastfeeding? Is the advice passed down from our mothers, grandmothers, and aunties still sage? Today we are going to find out.
With us on the show today is Adriana Vazquez, Co-Founder & CEO of Lilu (Lee-Lou), a company that has created the first-ever massaging pump bra. Adriana’s long list of credentials includes being recognized as one of the top 30 Femtech Healthcare Influencers of the Year, and the patent for her bra nabbed her Philadelphia’s Invention of the Year in 2019. While most of the breastfeeding world still relies on age-old wisdom, Adriana is leading the charge to bring technology into motherhood which makes life a heck of a lot easier for those who want to breastfeed successfully while working, parenting, and managing our increasingly busy day-to-day lives.
We look forward to having you with us for today's show!
