got milk?

Posted Feb 23 2009 9:44pm
In the current (March, p. 197) issue of Oprah's O Magazine is an article on breast milk & milk banking. Entitled, "The Gift", the article is about a woman who has preemie triplets and begins pumping, ultimately donating over 7,000 ounces of breastmilk to a milk bank.  It also talks a lot about why breastmilk is best for babies nutritionally and for all the other reasons beyond nutrition.   This article follows last month's   "Books That Made A Difference" section, (where a celeb tells about what they are reading and why), in which Isla Fisher ( Confessions of a Shopaholic ) talked about birth and  Ina May Gaskin's Guide... 

Why does this matter?  Because Oprah is incredibly influential and is sort of the holy grail in terms of PR...and because she has seemed to avoid birth-related topics much to the consternation of the birth community.  Hopefully this is a trend in the right direction!
