I love that you did the whole thing while feeding Winter, just fab.  Your message is so important and will go a long  way towards normalising breastfeeding. I am an IBCLC based in Ireland and we have the lowest breastfeeding rates in Ireland and really we need to get the entire country to become breastfeeding friendly:). Your great presentation will become part of my tool kit, congrats again.  Clare Boyle BSc, RM, IBCLC

  • I’ve been grateful for Mamava units more times than I can count as a working mother who frequently travels. I loved hearing Sascha’s origin story so inspiring!

  • Whenever I hear a someone ask a mother “why don’t you just breastfeed in the bathroom?” I always think would you want to eat your dinner in a bathroom?
