Postpartum Tips for New Parents

Robin is someone I met in a mastermind group this past year. She has so much knowledge and wisdom to offer. She has written a book, she started the San Diego Breastfeeding Center and is a mama of 2 teenage boys. This episode is for you to listen to if you are in this stage of life or know of someone who is. Share this resource with them. All of the things I wish I knew as a new mama years ago.

Robin Kaplan has been an IBCLC since 2009, the same year that she opened up the San Diego Breastfeeding Center. She founded the San Diego Breastfeeding Center Foundation in 2016, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to reduce breastfeeding/chestfeeding disparities among families of color and low-income families, as well as provide scholarships for women of color to become IBCLCs. Robin was the founding host of the Boob Group podcast and published her first book, Latch: a Handbook for Breastfeeding with Confidence at Every Stage in 2018. Robin is currently attending the Functional Nutrition Alliance to become a Functional Nutrition Counselor. In her free time, Robin enjoys hanging out with her two teenage boys, hiking, traveling, weaving, relaxing at the beach, cooking, and searching for the best chai latte.
