Politically Pregnant: A Lecture and Discussion

From Sydney Lewis ’14:

Birth and breastfeeding have recently become a highly politicized issues in the US and will affect most of our lives at some point, yet they are rarely discussed on college campuses. This presentation will feature two prominent birth policy scholars, who will discuss their experiences teaching childbirth education and working in lactation consulting. We’ll learn about approaches, common practices and research regarding birth and breastfeeding in the context of the current culture, media and medical models, and we will open to a group discussion about reproductive medical policy and social movements in the US.

Date: Tuesday, November 13
Time: 6pm
