Healthcare Provider Interview: Dr. Lisa Stellwagen

To kick off National Breastfeeding Month 2021, we interviewed Dr. Lisa Stellwagen about her work in the American Academy of Pediatrics, the importance (and challenges) of breastfeeding, the weirdest place she’s ever “done it,” and more!

We will feature a different breastfeeding rockstar each week in August. Stay tuned and be inspired!
