Des Moines Facilitator
My name is Taylor Kennedy. I live in Des Moines, IA. I have been a mother since 2017 and that is also when breastfeeding started for me. I now have two children, I have breastfeed. When I had my daughter in 2017, I had a full time job and we had a hard time latching and I didn’t know what to do. So I did a lot of pump and feeds. That worked well for us! With my son I was able to get some help and education from a nurse of color ( just doing her rounds.) She saw me and stayed a little longer to help me get the hang of it. And I was determined to get it this time! and was able to feed my son from my breast. With help and support from family and friends. I’m currently becoming a birth doula, so I can be that help I receive, for someone else!
