What do we lose when we don’t mother in community? What challenges could we overcome if we transformed birth and breastfeeding into a communal experience? This is the question Rita Little’s story brings to the forefront. Rita journey is about more than breastfeeding. It’s about mutual aide, systemic barriers that prevent us from mothering in the way we desire, and the unyielding commitment of Black mothers to our children.
