Implementing a Community-Based Breastfeeding and Infant Support Tent at University of Arkansas Athletic Events
Date of Graduation
Bachelor of Science in Nursing
Breastfeeding is such an important role in a mother and baby’s relationship as it establishes a unique bond while also providing health benefits for both parties involved. Unfortunately, many women are discriminated against for trying to breastfeed in public and with little to no designated breastfeeding areas or sanitary places in such spaces; they are left with very few viable options. During the last year I have been completing an internship surrounding the subject of breastfeeding and have helped to implement a breastfeeding and infant support tent at University of Arkansas athletic events. My work has included extensive research, lactation consultant shadowing, running/supervising the operations of the tent itself and much more. The experience has expanded my knowledge and training in this specific field of medicine and has enlightened me in how intricate the art of breastfeeding can actually be.
