Breastfeeding and Work-Life Balance with Johane Filemon

Johane Filemon, an Atlanta-based dietitian and mom, discusses the history of black women breastfeeding, mothering a family, and how she keeps it all in balance.

Johane M. Filemon, MS, RDN, CLT, shares tips for working mothers who want to breastfeed. She advises on managing the challenges of breastfeeding and working. She also explores ‌black women breastfeeding, their challenges, and how to support them.

There are several reasons why breastfeeding is essential, both for the mother and her child. It can help improve the bond between mother and child, give the child a more robust immune system, and help the mother recover from childbirth. Unfortunately, some women cannot breastfeed because they have to return to work soon after giving birth, making it challenging to find time to pump breast milk or breastfeed.

Johane encourages mothers to find support from others, particularly during their postpartum journey. Getting as much support as possible can help them learn from other people’s journeys without comparing and expecting the same things to occur.
