Abstract:

Many studies from around the world show that supporting moms on their journey can help them to successfully breastfeed and reach their personal feeding goals. Today we see many lactating parents go online through various different social media platforms for support in breastfeeding. Vanessa Simmons discusses how to use a mixture of photography, video, blogging, and support groups on social media to capture and tell stories of WIC families.
