Sunday, November 13, 2005And I thought The Lactivist was a kitschy name...
Stumbled across a news story yesterday that made mention of New Yorker Felina Rakowski-Gallagher, who owns a small botique in Manhatten called "The Upper Breast Side." The shop is located...you guessed it...on the Upper West Side at 220 71st Steet.
The shop's tagline is "you bring your breasts, we've got the rest."
The shop features ten brands and twenty-four styles of nursing bras and the friendly staff will even help measure you to make sure that you're buying a nursing bra with a proper fit. The Upper Breast Side also both rents and sells breast pumps from popular companies like Amedia and Medela along with herbs, nursing pillows, reference books and more.
They also offer regular "latch-on" clinics that are hosted by an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) along with baby CPR, First Aid and baby proofing courses.
