KUNM Call In Show 10/22 8a: 

It's fundraising week!  Instead of our usual call in program, we have selected highlights from our most compelling shows and mixed them together. These clips include lawmakers' insights into New Mexico's government, activists discussing proposed reforms and a variety of callers sharing their two cents. To put it simply, it's just good radio!

KUNM Call In Show 8/27 8a

Advocates around the state are working to help new moms who want to breastfeed make it happen. They’re embarking on campaigns to normalize breastfeeding and inform women of their rights at work.

Are hospitals helping women start the process? Are New Mexico employers offering their workers clean, private spaces to pump milk? Did you or anyone you know ever face disapproval or judgment for nursing in public? Are businesses friendly to breastfeeding moms?

Moms and hospitals around the state are working to figure out what can be done to support breastfeeding. It’s all about re-normalizing an ancient and intimate exchange of nutrition in the United States today.
