Marian Tompson was a rebel against formula feeding in 1956 when she co-founded La Leche League and became its first president. Anyone associated with La Leche League or breastfeeding promotion knows this. Fewer know that she rebelled against the advice that HIV-positive mothers should not breastfeed, in the late 1990s, when she founded http://AnotherLook.org to take another look at the evidence against breastfeeding, that turned out to be shockingly thin. She was also a rebel against other aspects of childbirth and child rearing, such as birth without anesthetics and birth at home.

 

Marian Tompson recently co-wrote her autobiography, “Passionate Journey”, even though her journey is far from over, she is still running Another Look and is back on the board of La Leche League, apart from spending time with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Listen to this interview with a remarkable woman.
