Plant-Based Parenting Series #2 – Birth & Breastfeeding

posted in: Podcast Posts | 0

Listen on Google Play MusicWelcome back to the Plant-Based Parenting Series! In the second installment of the series, Aaron walks you through:

The intense birth experience of his daughter Lilah

The effect of Cesarean Section births on the infant microbiota, how that impacts health outcomes and what you can do to mitigate some of the risks

What it was like to bring a new child home and how they survived sleep deprivation

The myriad benefits of breast feeding according to peer reviewed science and how they managed a supply issue after his wife returned to work  

If you liked the episode, please share it with your friends and/or with other vegan parenting sources as I am sure many people would like to know about the show. If anything was missed that you were really hoping would be covered, please email us at and Aaron will try to address it in the next show or individually with you via email.
