56:48

In honor of National Nutrition Month, we have the INCREDIBLE Agatha Achindu, founder of Yummy Spoonfuls and health advocate, to speak on the importance of nutrition and wellness.

“When you really find the inner joy that you love your body you start thinking about the things you put in it”- Agatha Achindu

During our conversation, we learn when and how Agatha found her passion, the risks she took to follow it and the times her faith was tested along the way. Trust us, Agatha is a game changer and nothing will stand in her way in spreading her message.

40:01

After reading an email from one of our super mamas about a collective she belongs to  (MOCA- Mothers of Colors in Academia) that fights and advocates for parenting students rights and who are currently fighting for more lactation rooms in UCLA,  we realized it was important to talk more about breastfeeding and everything that comes with it.  Paulina is going through the journey once again with baby  Zixta and after having a great experience in Mexico, she came back to totally different experience here in the US. 

There is still a long journey to #normalizebreastfeeding, but regardless of our preference, we need to support one another and accept the choices we each make.
