No. 70 | Breastfeeding + Motherhood with Rehab Addict's Nicole Curtis
This week Nicole Curtis from HGTV's hit show Rehab Addict joins me to discuss breastfeeding and motherhood. After a very public custody battle that included defending her rights to breastfeed, Nicole has become an advocate for breastfeeding mothers. We chat all things breastfeeding, including hand expression, peer support, working as a breastfeeding mother and the importance of therapy and mental health. BIO: Nicole Curtis is a baby-wearing, booby-feeding, holistic mommy of 2 and in her free time, she is the NYT Best-selling author, executive-producer + on-air talent of HGTV's hit show Rehab Addict. She hid her pregnancy and the birth of her 2nd child from the media only to have it blasted across headlines by her disgruntled ex. It was only after it went public against her choice, even her court documents were UNSEALED, did she decide to take such an outspoken stance. She was ridiculed for breastfeeding, her attached, and natural parenting. However, by going public she opened the door for other moms like her to have support. She views that as the silver lining in all the trauma. Just when you think you have this motherhood thing nailed down, your kid enters a new phase of development and it’s all new again... I the end goal for all of us is to raise kind and happy humans and so that is our job”. — Nicole Curtis SHOW NOTES: WBW resource pageBabies Don’t Cry In Africa article Modern Natural Baby Store in Michigan Nicole Curtis website Connect with Nicole on Instagram @detroitdesignThank you so much for listening!
