In this episode we talk with the utterly wonderful Prof Amy Brown about why she doesn’t like sea lions, looking at breastfeeding from a biological perspective, women’s experiences of feeding their babies, how to navigate the internet as a birth worker and more!

Prof Amy Brown is a professor of maternal and child public health at Swansea University. She is based in the department of public health, policy and social sciences where she is the director of their research centre 'LIFT' which stands for Lactation, Infant Feeding and Translation. She researches everything to do with becoming and being a new parent, with a particular focus on infant feeding, mental health and normal baby behaviour. The ultimate aim of her research being to change society and culture, which as she states“turns out not to be an overnight job”. Amy wants to see a future where women and families are respected, valued and supported in growing, birthing and caring for their babies.

Amy has written extensively; a plethora of books, research, blog articles and videos which you can find below.
