Insufficient glandular Tissue (Breast Hypoplasia): My Experience as a Mother of Eight
 
42:01
Disclaimer: This video depicts my general personal experience and observations and does not constitute medical advice or care. If you suspect you have IGT, or have any concerns about breastfeeding or your babies health, please consult a healthcare professional for care and referral to appropriate specialists. Website: fertilewisdom.net (an article on this topic will be up later today). I made this video because, in my experience, it is difficult to find health care professionals who even acknowledge IGT as a potential cause of major breastfeeding difficulties. I feel that, for this reason, many women feel alienated and lost, desperately wanting to breastfeed and trying everything, while being made to feel that they are simply not trying hard enough. It is only by acknowledging that this is a very real issue and through education (particularly of health professionals) that women can be given the support to breastfeed when they want to. The 'all or nothing' approach is not leading to better breastfeeding statistics - women need to know that if they cannot breastfeed exclusively (for physical or lifestyle reasons), that breastfeeding as much as is possible for them is an option in most cases. This video was created on the spur of the moment in an attempt to actually get it done, so there were a few things that I forgot to mention, or didn't explain fully. I'm a better blogger than I am vlogger, so if you would like to read about my experiences, I will be uploading a new article to my website later today :-) Otherwise, I will just mention a few key points that I wanted to explain better: A hallmark feature in Insufficient Glandular Tissue (IGT) is a delay in building milk supply (or a need to slowly build milk supply rather than a sudden onset of breast engorgement at around day three postpartum). For those with IGT, with the right support, breast milk production can take a month or so to peak. Because IGT is simply having less tissue in which to store milk (not an inability to make milk per se), some women with IGT can manage to breastfeed exclusively if they breastfeed more often than the average woman (less milk but more often equals enough milk). Of course, this is dependent on the individual severity of IGT. There are many theories as to how one develops IGT. One obvious cause is breast reduction surgery, commonly causing IGT. However, most women with IGT do not know the cause. There may be a link to development in utero, or hormonal imbalance in some cases. Please speak to a health professional if you suspect IGT or have been diagnosed but have not yet found adequate support for your situation. Thank you for watching, Liana

Do Hormones Rule Our Life? How Do They Work? - Hormones and their Functions Explained
 
04:00
Hormones are released by the endocrine glands. They move in our blood and influence the nervous system impacting behaviors and body functions such as emotions, reproduction system, hunger, moods etc. They are messengers and pass on messages from the brain to the body organs. Every gland produces a specific type of hormone which has a specific set of functions to perform in various organs.

SHARE ARTICLE 248 16 PRINT A A A A clampdown on the sale of oxytocin will have severe public health consequences The Union Health Ministry’s ban on the retail sale and private manufacture of oxytocin, expected to kick off on September 1, is an extremely ill-thought-out one. The drug, a synthetic version of a human hormone, is a life-saver for women. Doctors use it to induce labour in pregnant women and to stem postpartum bleeding. So critical is its role in maternal health that the World Health Organization recommends it as the drug of choice in postpartum haemorrhage. The government’s ban ignores this, and is motivated instead by the misuse of the hormone in the dairy industry. Because oxytocin stimulates lactation in cattle, dairy farmers inject the drug indiscriminately to increase milk production. This has spawned several unlicensed facilities that manufacture the drug for veterinary use. It is a problem that needs solving. But the right approach would have been to strengthen regulation, and crack down on illegal production. Much is unknown about the ill-effects of oxytocin on cattle. One of the concerns was that oxytocin leads to infertility in dairy animals, and some studies show this to be true. It has also been linked to mastitis, a painful inflammation of the udder. Milk consumers worry about exposure to it through dairy products. The science behind some of these claims is unclear. In a Lok Sabha answer in 2015, the National Dairy Research Institute was quoted as saying there was no evidence that oxytocin led to infertility. A 2014 study by researchers at the National Institute of Nutrition concluded that oxytocin content in buffalo milk did not alter with injections. However, even if the ill-effects of oxytocin are real, a ban is not the answer. Oxytocin is simply too important to Indian women, 45,000 of whom die due to causes related to childbirth each year. A parallel to the situation lies in the misuse of antibiotics in humans and poultry. So heavily are these drugs used that they are causing deadly bacteria to become resistant to them. Yet, despite calls for a complete ban on over-the-counter sale of antibiotics, India has been reluctant to do so. In much of rural India, more people still die due to a lack of antibiotics than due to antibiotic-resistance. This has swung the cost-benefit ratio against outright bans. In oxytocin’s case, if only a single public sector unit manufactures the drug, as the government plans, this could lead to drug shortages and price hikes. Karnataka Antibiotics & Pharmaceuticals Limited, the drugmaker tasked with manufacturing oxytocin, has been asked to cap the price at ₹16.56 for 1 ml of a five international unit (IU) solution. However, some private manufacturers were selling it for ₹4 until now. Monopolising production will remove the low-price options from the market. Such a situation may benefit cattle, but will put the lives of many women at risk.

What causes milky discharge in women who are not lactating? - Dr. Mamatha Reddy YV
 
01:22
Any milky or watery discharge from the nipple in a woman who is not lactating could be because of many reasons. Sometimes it can be because of nipple stimulation or usage of drugs like antidepressants or antipsychotic drugs or it can be because of excessive prolactin secretion or thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome or prolactin secreting tumor of the pituitary glands. So these situations can lead to excess milk secretions from the breast. In a parous woman or lactating woman, even after stopping feeding, they may continue to have a milky white discharge from the breast for a period of 6 months to 1 year also.

How Does Pituitary Gland Work? Hormones of Hypophysis Functions & Disorders Animation -TSH FSH Video
 
03:00
The pituitary gland is often referred to as the "master gland" of the body, since it regulates many activities of other endocrine glands. Located above the pituitary gland is the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus decides which hormones the pituitary should release by sending it either hormonal or electrical messages. In response to hormonal messages from the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland releases the following hormones: GH (growth hormone) – increases size of muscle and bone TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) – stimulates the thyroid gland to release T3 and T4 to stimulate metabolism in other cells throughout the body FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) – stimulates ovarian follicle production in women; stimulates sperm production in men LH (luteinizing hormone) – stimulates ovaries to produce estrogen in women; stimulates sperm production in men Prolactin – stimulates breast tissue in nursing mothers to produce milk ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone) - causes the adrenal glands to produce important substances that have properties similar to steroids In response to electrical messages from the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland releases the following hormones: ADH (antidiuretic hormone) - stimulates the kidneys to reabsorb fluid and produce less urine Oxytocin – initiates labor, uterine contractions and milk ejection in mothers The pituitary gland, or hypophysis, is an endocrine gland about the size of a pea and weighing 0.5 grams (0.018 oz) in humans. It is a protrusion off the bottom of the hypothalamus at the base of the brain. The hypophysis rests upon the hypophysial fossa of the sphenoid bone in the center of the middle cranial fossa and is surrounded by a small bony cavity (sella turcica) covered by a dural fold (diaphragma sellae). The anterior pituitary (or adenohypophysis) is a lobe of the gland that regulates several physiological processes (including stress, growth, reproduction, and lactation). The intermediate lobe synthesizes and secretes melanocyte-stimulating hormone. The posterior pituitary (or neurohypophysis) is a lobe of the gland that is functionally connected to the hypothalamus by the median eminence via a small tube called the pituitary stalk Hormones secreted from the pituitary gland help control the following body processes: Growth Blood pressure Some aspects of pregnancy and childbirth including stimulation of uterine contractions during childbirth Breast milk production Sex organ functions in both males and females Thyroid gland function The conversion of food into energy (metabolism) Water and osmolarity regulation in the body Water balance via the control of reabsorption of water by the kidneys Temperature regulation Pain relief Sleeping patterns (pineal gland) Some of the diseases involving the pituitary gland are: Central diabetes insipidus caused by a deficiency of vasopressin. Gigantism and acromegaly caused by an excess of growth hormone in childhood and adult respectively. Hypothyroidism caused by a deficiency of thyroid-stimulating hormone. Hyperpituitarism, the increased (hyper) secretion of one or more of the hormones normally produced by the pituitary gland. Hypopituitarism, the decreased (hypo) secretion of one or more of the hormones normally produced by the pituitary gland. Panhypopituitarism a decreased secretion of most of the pituitary hormones. Pituitary tumours. Pituitary adenomas, noncancerous tumors that occur in the pituitary gland. Somatotrophins: Human growth hormone (HGH), also referred to as 'growth hormone' (GH), and also as somatotropin, is released under the influence of hypothalamic growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), and is inhibited by hypothalamic somatostatin Thyrotrophins: Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), is released under the influence of hypothalamic thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) and is inhibited by somatostatin. Corticotropins: Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), and Beta-endorphin are released under the influence of hypothalamic corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH). Lactotrophins: Prolactin (PRL), also known as 'Luteotropic' hormone (LTH), Gonadotropins: Luteinizing hormone (also referred to as 'Lutropin' or 'LH'). Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), both released under influence of Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone (GnRH) The intermediate lobe synthesizes and secretes the following important endocrine hormone: Melanocyte–stimulating hormone (MSH). This is also produced in the anterior lobe. When produced in the intermediate lobe, MSHs are sometimes called "intermedins". Posterior: Magnocellular Neurons: Antidiuretic hormone (ADH, also known as vasopressin and arginine vasopressin AVP), the majority of which is released from the supraoptic nucleus in the hypothalamus. Oxytocin, most of which is released from the paraventricular nucleus in the hypothalamus.

What is the hypothalamus? The hypothalamus is a small region of the brain. It’s located at the base of the brain, near the pituitary gland. While it’s very small, the hypothalamus plays a crucial role in many important functions, including: releasing hormones regulating body temperature maintaining daily physiological cycles controlling appetite managing of sexual behavior regulating emotional responses Anatomy and function The hypothalamus has three main regions. Each one contains different nuclei. These are clusters of neurons that perform vital functions, such as releasing hormones. Anterior region This area is also called the supraoptic region. Its major nuclei include the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei. There are several other smaller nuclei in the anterior region as well. The nuclei in the anterior region are largely involved in the secretion of various hormones. Many of these hormones interact with the nearby pituitary gland to produce additional hormones. Some of the most important hormones produced in the anterior region include: Corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH). CRH is involved in the body’s response to both physical and emotional stress. It signals the pituitary gland to produce a hormone called adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). ACTH triggers the production of cortisol, an important stress hormone. Thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH). TRH production stimulates the pituitary gland to produce thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). TSH plays an important role in the function of many body parts, such as the heart, gastrointestinal tract, and muscles. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). GnRH production causes the pituitary gland to produce important reproductive hormones, such as follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). Oxytocin. This hormone controls many important behaviors and emotions, such as sexual arousal, trust, recognition, and maternal behavior. It’s also involved in some functions of the reproductive system, such as childbirth and lactation. Vasopressin. Also called antidiuretic hormone (ADH), this hormone regulates water levels in the body. When vasopressin is released, it signals the kidneys to absorb water. Somatostatin. Somatostatin works to stop the pituitary gland from releasing certain hormones, including growth hormones and thyroid-stimulating hormones. https://www.healthline.com/human-body-maps/hypothalamus#anatomy-and-function Image Credits: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/48/Figure_35_03_06.jpg By CNX OpenStax [CC BY 4.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Oxytocin Production Is Key For Healing Yourself + Health Benefits Of Oxytocin

Oxytocin Production Is Key For Healing Yourself + Health Benefits Of Oxytocin This Bliss Hormone Can Heal Your Body: The Many Benefits of Oxytocin A special chemical in your body, called oxytocin, helps to create the feeling of falling in love. Sometimes referred to as the hormone of “forgetting oneself,” oxytocin plays an important role in birth, lactation, bonding, and the big "O". The hormone of love, oxytocin, influences the digestive system as much as it influences the brain. Oxytocin has been proven to cool gastrointestinal inflammation to alleviate food sensitivities, autoimmune disorders, and even Candida infections! Oxytocin can act like a psychological buffer. Nature wired both men and women to experience an oxytocin surge (or several) during moments of bonding with each other or their children. Oxytocin naturally enhances a sense of: Optimism, Trust, Mastery, Self-esteem. OXYTOCIN BENEFITS OTHER SYSTEMS IN THE BODY During childbirth, both the fetus and the mother release oxytocin. Not only does oxytocin enhance the bonding experience, it also stimulates uterine contractions. This is why synthetic oxytocin (also called Pitocin) is given during labor. It can promote delivery or speed up contractions. Unfortunately, synthetic oxytocin or even an epidural can interfere with the natural regulation of oxytocin that both mother and baby experience during labor and after delivery. As much as oxytocin enhances the mother-child relationship, it can also help to generate a strong bond between romantic partners. We experience a surge of oxytocin during the big "O". Kind words or a gentle touch can also drive oxytocin levels up, enhancing the experience of what we identify as love and trust. WHEN THE BODY CANNOT MAKE OXYTOCIN Unfortunately, there are situations in life when oxytocin levels dip too low, or worse, never rise to the surface. Some examples are: 1. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Those with PTSD are in a constant state of anxiety and low-grade fear. This anxiety can climax when startled or in trigger situations. It has been found that oxytocin reduces background anxiety in those with PTSD. Even though oxytocin can reduce anxiety after trauma, it does not affect the actual memory of the trauma. 2. Childhood Trauma. Trauma during infancy or childhood can affect oxytocin levels for years, decades, or even an entire lifetime. This kind of trauma can range from severe abuse during childhood to a divorce between parents. When trauma during childhood occurs, the body and mind engage an adaptive defence mechanism that reduces levels of oxytocin. This type of programming is a survival mechanism. It can affect relationships and even physical health. 3. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In certain cases of autism, the receptor site for oxytocin is genetically not available. When oxytocin has nowhere to go, it cannot do its job. Sometimes in those with ASD, the production of oxytocin is also drastically low.

Breast Milk Without Pregnancy Is It Normal
 
00:25
Lactation is the process of producing breast milk. For women who are pregnant or recently gave birth, lactation is normal. Hormones signal the mammary glands in your body to start producing milk to feed the baby. But it's also possible for women who have never been pregnant — and even men — to lactate. Women who aren't pregnant but who wish to lactate can take a daily regimen of hormones to mimic these processes that occur during pregnancy. Typically, hormone therapy is discontinued shortly before breast-feeding begins. At that point, the baby's suckling is thought to stimulate and maintain milk ...If you have a milk on breast, but you are not pregnant you may be scared and confused. Often, discharge from a nipple is nothing to worry about. Sometimes leaking breast but not pregnant can be serious, but it is most often normal. If you are still concerned, you are not nursing a baby and have nipple discharge, you should ...No it isn't, unless the breasts have been stimulated by either hormones or manually to produce milk. Without intending to cause alarm, lactation without the birth or loss of pregnancy needs to be investigated. It could simply be a hormonal imbalance (natural or contraception induced perhaps) however there are tumours ...Question. Is it possible to produce breast milk without being pregnant? I'm 22-years-old and came off the Pill three months ago. Since then, I have had regular periods. It is highly unlikely that I am pregnant, but I appear to be producing milk. Is there anything else which could explain this?Nipple discharge can occur normally during the last weeks of pregnancy and after childbirth when breast milk is produced. A nipple discharge can also be normal in women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding, especially during the reproductive years.lactation without pregnancy. mom breastfeeding the baby. Is lactation without pregnancy possible or is it just a myth? Throughout the history of mankind, there have always been babies who were breastfed by women who replaced their mothers. They were at the breast of another woman due to the death or ...What causes breastmilk in men or women without pregnancy? Causes of Galactorrhea. Galactorrhea has a myriad of causes. The most common cause of galactorrhea in both men and women is a tumor of the pituitary gland, a small pea-shaped gland situated just below the brain that produces a hormone called prolactin. Lactation without pregnancy is the production of breast milk in women who are not pregnant. Causes are miscarriage or ... Some of the most common causes of lactation without pregnancy include breast stimulation, medication, hypothyroidism or benign tumor growth, among others. Medication – Certain ...Breastmilk production is largely regulated by the hormone prolactin secreted from the pituitary gland. Normally prolactin is released when the pituitary gland is stimulated by other hormones or impulses from the breast tissue as is seen with the suckling infant. However, in galactorrhea there is usually an excess of prolactin ... If you stop producing milk after weaning and then start again, it could be due to a new pregnancy (or a recent miscarriage). ...

2-Minute Neuroscience: Hypothalamus & Pituitary Gland
 
02:01
In my 2-Minute Neuroscience videos I explain neuroscience topics in 2 minutes or less. In this video, I cover the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. I discuss the two major roles of the hypothalamus: homeostasis and hormones. I also explain how the hypothalamus controls hormone release by manipulating the pituitary gland. I cover the anterior and posterior lobes of the pituitary gland, along with the most common hormones secreted from each lobe. For more neuroscience articles, videos, and a complete neuroscience glossary, check out my website at www.neuroscientificallychallenged.com ! TRANSCRIPT: Welcome to 2 minute neuroscience, where I simplistically explain neuroscience topics in 2 minutes or less. In this installment I will discuss the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. The hypothalamus is a small region situated directly above the brainstem. It is made up of a collection of nuclei with a variety of functions, but in general the hypothalamus is involved in controlling the two H’s: homeostasis and hormones. Homeostasis is a term used to describe the maintenance of balance or stability in a biological system. The hypothalamus can maintain homeostasis either by exerting direct influence over the autonomic nervous system, or by causing the release of hormones. The hypothalamus manipulates hormone release primarily by controlling the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is a hormone-secreting gland that sits just below the hypothalamus. It is sometimes called the “master gland” because it not only secretes many extremely important hormones but it also regulates the activity of other hormone-secreting glands throughout the body. The pituitary consists of two lobes, called the anterior and the posterior pituitary. The anterior pituitary is responsible for the release of a number of hormones that have widespread effects throughout the body. They include growth hormone, which is involved with growth, follicle-stimulating hormone, which plays a role in development and reproduction, luteinizing hormone, which is essential to testosterone production and reproduction, adrenocorticotropic hormone, which is involved with the stress/fear response, thyroid sTimulating hormone, which is important to healthy metabolism, and prolactin, which promotes milk production in females. The release of these hormones is controlled by the hypothalamus, which sends signals in the form of releasing hormones to tell the anterior pituitary when to secrete its hormones. The posterior pituitary also secretes two hormones, but does not synthesize them. Instead, they are synthesized by the hypothalamus and then sent to the posterior pituitary for release into the bloodstream. The names of these hormones are: oxytocin and vasopressin. Oxytocin has important roles in facilitating childbirth and lactation, but is also thought to have a role in compassion and social bonding. Vasopressin's main functions are to control urine output and regulate blood pressure.

HUMAN ENDOCRINE SYSTEM :Prolactin: Maternity hormone It stimulates growth of mammary glands during pregnancy and lactation afterwards. 3 Thyroid stimulating Hormone TSH. It stimulates thyroid to produce and release its hormones. 4 Adenocorticotropic Hormone : ACTH It activates adrenal cortex to produce its hormones. Follicle stimulating hormone FSH. It stimulates sperm formation in males, growth of ovarian follicles and secretion of estrogen from them in females. 5 Luteinisisng Hormone LH In females the hormone stimulates ovulation and secretion and secretion of progesterone from corpus luteum. In males the hormones is also called interstitial cell stimulating hormone ICSH. It induces leyding cells of tests to secrete testosterone. FSH and LH hormones are collectively called gonadotrophins or gonadotrophic hormones. A. Middle lobe of pituitary : Melanocyte stimulating hormone MSH. The hormone causes dispersal of melanin or pigment granules in chromatophores causing darkening of skin. B. Posterior lobe of pituitary : It produces two hormones which are actually neurosecretion products of hypothalamus. 1 Oxytocin: The hormone stimulates uterine contractions during child birth and milk ejection during suckling of infant. Oxytocin is also called birth hormone and milk ejection hormone. Milk secretion is under control of prolatcin. 2 Vasopressin or Antidiuretic Hormone ADH. It is essential for reabsorption of water from distal convoluted tubules, collecting tubules and collecting ducts for producing concentrated urine. Deficiency of hormone causes disorder known as diabetes insipidus. It produces a lot of urine more than 1.5 Liters/day at short intervals resulting in excessive thirst and dehydration. At high concentration the hormone raises blood pressure B.P by causing constriction of arterioles. 1 PINEAL GLAND :It is a small stalked body located on the dorsal side of forebrain. The gland secretes hormone called melatonin. It controls mood, sleep, regulates sexual cycle, body temperature. It also influences metabolism, pigmentation, the menstrual cycle as well as our defense capability.

I'm breastfeeding and don't have periods. How do I know if I'm ovulating? Can I get pregnant?
 
01:52
You mentioned that you have an eight month old and you're still breastfeeding, that's awesome. You're starting to think about baby number two, maybe you're wanting to try when your baby is about a year of age it sounds like. Because you're not having regular cycles it's hard to tell if you're ovulating or not, breastfeeding will do that to you. Some women never resume their period until they stop nursing. It's because the hormones of breastfeeding suppress ovulation and thus cycles. With that said, breastfeeding is not a sure form of contraception. Of course, there are many women who get pregnant while they're nursing. Some women never have a period and then all of the sudden find out that they're pregnant. That can happen but the chances of you ovulating when you're not having cycles and when you're breastfeeding are lower than they would be if you weren't. So that day might come when you really want to have another baby but you're still breastfeeding and then you need to weigh out what your priorities are. If you really want to have another baby and you've breastfed your first baby until a year of age, that's really good. There's a lot of be said in that. You and your baby have gained the health benefits that come from nursing. If you want to stop breastfeeding at that time so your body can resume normal cycles and it will make it easier for you to get pregnant then you can decide if that's a decision you'd like to make. In order to get pregnant, of course you do need to ovulate and you need to time intercourse with ovulation, this is really hard to do if you're not having regular cycles. I suggest you talk with your doctor and they can help you decide what plan would be best for you based on their knowledge of your circumstances and their ability to ask you more specific questions. Good luck with everything and if you have more questions for me in the future, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/intermountainmoms and recommend us to your friends and family too.

Breastfeeding Dad in 2012
 
00:10
Aug 23, 2012 - Up until last week the great breastfeeding debate was centered on where to do it and for how long. But Trevor MacDonald, a 27-year-old transgender parent, has raised an ever bigger question: who gets to do it? The Winnipeg-based MacDonald has been chronicling his unique breastfeeding experience in photos and anecdotes on his blog for almost a year. But he gained national exposure this month, after a disagreement with La Leche League, an international breastfeeding support organization, over their definition on motherhood. After nursing his now 16-month-old son, Jacob, he hoped to become a coach for one of the club's local support groups, but was informed only women could serve as group leaders. MacDonald was born a female but transitioned to a male at age 23 through a course of hormone treatments and chest contouring surgery. "I retained my female reproductive organs, but I felt (and still feel) fully male, and anybody seeing me on the street would never guess that I'm anything but a regular dude," he writes in an Out Magazine article published in April. He also firmly identifies himself as a father, rather than a mother. STORY: Mom sues over breastfeeding video He also identifies himself as homosexual ("yes, I'm that complicated," he quips) and wed his husband before becoming pregnant with their child. Before giving birth naturally he found about a breastfeeding method for women who've had mastectomies. His main goal was providing his newborn with the kind of nutrients only breast milk can provide. (The World Health Organization recommends breast milk for at least the first six months of a child's life.) Through SNS, a tubular device that connects a bottle to the nipple area so the child can simulate the experience of nursing, MacDonald began feeding his son, supplementing his own minimal production with lactation donations. At first, he found it "physically very challenging to latch a baby on when you have next to zero protruding breast tissue," but with the help of LLL's services Jacob's nursing improved. STORY: Debate over public breastfeeding flares up In a letter to LLL contesting their women-only policy MacDonald praises the institution, recognizing that a breastfeeding dad is "entirely new territory." "Without the support and information provided to me by LLL, I doubt that I would be breastfeeding today," he writes in the letter republished on his blog MilkJunkies. "It is my hope that I could some day reciprocate the compassion, encouragement, and expertise that made such a difference to my personal breastfeeding experience." But LLL maintained their policy that leaders of groups must be female. In fairness, LLL's response to MacDonald, republished on his blog, emphasizes it's mission to "help all mothers...irrespective of their background." Even MacDonald, who identifies as a father, was supported by the LLL. But their leadership policies are staunchly in place. "I think there may be confusion between whom we support and who can be a Leader...in this case it is the experience of mothering through breastfeeding which qualifies a Leader to help others." MacDonald's story was widely covered in Canadian press this week, raising new questions particularly among women. "La Leche League Canada's decision is discriminatory," PhD in Parenting blogger Annie Urban, told the Toronto Star. "It is time for La Leche League to update its guidelines and recognize that breastfeeding is not exclusively a mother's domain." A Montreal-based woman named Jill disagrees. In a letter to the Montreal Gazette, one of the outlets covering the story, she defended the LLL's decision, believing they were protecting mothers who might be self-conscious opening the intimacies of breastfeeding to male participants. "I believe they came to the decision that the best thing for the people they're mandated to help would be to have a woman leading the support groups," she wrote. But this particular breastfeeding debate isn't about taking sides, it's about the evolution of the way we define motherhood, fatherhood and everything in between. California's recent bill to allow multiple legal parents of kids is another example of how family structures are evolving due not only to widening acceptance of sexual and gender orientation, but also of, divorce and single parenthood. Within the growing transgender community, an estimated 38 percent are parents, according to the Williams Institute. Those numbers will continue to rise with scientific and educational progress. Does that mean one institution should change its policies? Not necessarily, though interest in MacDonald's case may breed more support groups for all types of fathers looking to breastfeed.

The pituitary gland is an endocrine gland about the size of a pea in humans. It regulates several physiological processes including stress, growth, reproduction, and lactation. Hormones secreted by the pituitary gland help control growth, blood pressure, certain functions of the sex organs, thyroid gland, and metabolism, as well as some aspects of pregnancy, childbirth, nursing, water/salt concentration in the kidneys, temperature regulation, and pain relief. ⭐Learn more about Quantum University ⭐ 🎓Degree Programs Offered - https://quantumuniversity.com/degree-programs/ 💻Student Experience - https://quantumuniversity.com/student-experience/ 💙Career Paths - https://quantumuniversity.com/career-paths/ ❓ Request Information - https://quantumuniversity.com/request-information/ 👍 Like Us on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/QuantumUniversity
