Dr. Joanne White

Dr. White’s promotion of breastfeeding comes directly from her own life, and it is best summed up by a colleague:

“I would like to nominate a physician who actively demonstrates her support of breastfeeding in the workplace. Dr. Joanne White is an obstetrician who is currently breastfeeding her youngest son. She has brought her baby to meetings and workshops – even when she is presenting – without interfering with her professionalism and contributions to the team. We love having the baby with us! She probably doesn’t see herself as a role model, but certainly her colleagues do. Her gentle advocacy and leadership normalizes and demonstrates that a mother can competently continue in her professional role without compromising her ability to care for, feed, and bond with her baby.”
