with guest Francie Webb
Air Date: January 29, 2018
Face it: You are not in love with your pump. Hooking yourself up to a machine that literally sucks the milk out of you isn’t something you enjoy or look forward to. Yet, day after day, you do it so that you can provide the goodness of your milk for your baby. But are you sick of hooking yourself up to a machine and having all the hassles of assembling, using, disassembling and cleaning pump parts? Plus lugging the pump around, losing tiny pump parts or not finding an electrical outlet? Wondering if is there an easier way?For many women, there is! Join Marie as her special guest, Francie Webb, tells how she hated pumping, and accidentally discovered how to hand express—and get several ounces without really trying! Even if you’ve tried hand expression unsuccessfully in the past, it’s a good bet that you’ll hear Francie’s tried-and-true tips, and want to try it again!

Francie Webb is a mom of two who lives in Harlem, NYC. As founder and CEO of TheMilkinMama, she is dedicated to helping parents have more power, more freedom, and less stress. Francie loved (almost) every minute of the fourteen years she spent teaching middle school, yet she discovered a new calling as a doula and lactation professional after her two transformative births. Francie loves yoga, meditation, reading, writing, traveling, being outdoors, riding her bike, her large extended family, spending time with friends, date nights with her husband, and food. A native of Virginia who somehow still says “you guys”* instead of “y’all,” Francie graduated from Duke University and earned Masters Degrees from Pace University and Bank Street College of Education. She is currently studying to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Among other aspirations, she hopes to become a midwife one day.
