Operation Lactation Freedom
We are running to support moms everywhere!!!! Team Operation Lactation Freedom runs to bring awareness and support for breastfeeding especially for women in uniform and women from low income backgrounds. Let's let freedom ring for moms and babies - freedom to make an informed feeding decision, freedom to carry that out without being bulllied or booby-trapped, freedom to get the support every momma and baby deserve to do something instinctive, healthy and good for everyone!
I am a mother in combat boots, combat veteran, and a labor doula. I stand strong for service to this country and service to mothers. When I had my son at 18, I didnt know enough and didnt have enough support to stand on my own. Now with my daughter, I push through, not just for myself but for others as well. I have to pave the way so that there is freedom when its my daughter's turn to be a mother!!!
Our next race will be the XTERRA Harbison 5k and Half Marathon on July 7, 2013 in Columbia, SC :)
