“I am absolutely pro-breastfeeding. I am absolutely AGAINST starving a child to achieve it.”

Dr. Christie del Castillo-Hegyi, Co-Founder, Board Certified Emergency Physician, Breastfeeding Complications and Newborn Brain Injury Researcher

“My mission is to teach mothers how to breastfeed their babies safely to prevent unintended and accidental infant starvation from exclusive breastfeeding practices, especially during the first several days of life.”
