Our girl, Keshia Knight Pulliam, gave birth to her sweet baby, Ella Grace, only a few weeks ago. As we all know, Keshia’s ain’t sh*t baby-daddy has been out of the picture since he publicly announced he wanted a paternity test while they were going through a divorce. Since then, Keshia’s kept a pretty low profile, not even sharing full images of the baby.
However, Keshia’s been active on her her Kandidly Keshia podcast, and shared a not-so-surprising story about the Lactation specialist at her hospital.
Keshiadsaid her doctors at the Atlanta hospital were great, but the lactation specialist wasn’t so hot.
“This old little white lady, I think she may have voted for Trump, but bless her heart… So lactation specialists, for those who don’t know, because I’m breastfeeding, are the ones who help you through the process … anything having to do with breastfeeding.
“Of the 30-some odd things on here she says, ‘Yes, and we have some great programs that you may want to take advantage of that you may need — WIC is a great program; I don’t know if you have insurance….”WIC is welfare. So I guess she saw this little black girl with the little baby by herself, and on the door, I didn’t realize that they’d put a faux last name, and the last name was ‘Brown.’ So I guess she saw ‘Miss Brown’ and was like, ‘She probably needs some WIC.
That’s when I stopped her — I said, ‘Ma’am, I have excellent insurance but thank you.
She also said the specialist didn’t seem to want to touch her. And for those that don’t know, these specialist have to be very hands on. Especially with a new mom. My lactation specialist physically placed my nipple in my son’s mouth when he was born. Having a lactation specialist not want to touch you is beyond bizarre.
Like… This lady was not trying to touch my little brown boobie.
This lady, she doesn’t know any better, because if she knew better, she’d do better! But yes, the old Trump lady tried to give me the number for WIC. My thing is this: I get it, it’s about showing the services that are offered, and I probably wouldn’t have been offended had she [listed] several of the services, [not just] WIC
Smh….what are your thoughts?
Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
