The Breastfeeding Churva

Jun 29, 2017 by

I am a product of breastfeeding. My mother told me she breastfed me for at least one year. But since she had to work as soon as I am able to handle bottle-feeding, I guess that’s how I turned out this way:


Haha! Just kidding.

Anyway, this really isn’t about breastfeeding.

Just click-baiting! Hahaha!

Here’s what I found and if you have time to check out their website omg, they’re extremely Scottish and I love it. This is what forthvalleyadvocacy has to say about WHAT ADVOCACY IS and IS NOT:

Independent Advocacy safeguards people who are vulnerable and discriminated against or whom services find difficult to serve. It empowers people who need a stronger voice by enabling them to express their own needs and make their own decisions.

Independent Advocacy is:

  • About standing alongside people who are in danger of being pushed to the margins of society
  • Speaking on behalf of people who are unable to do so for themselves
  • About standing up for and sticking with a person or group and taking their side
  • A process of working towards natural justice
  • Listening to someone and trying to understand their point of view
  • Finding out what makes a person feel good and valued
  • Understanding our clients situation and what may be stopping them from getting what they want
  • Offering the person support to tell other people what they want or introducing them to others who may be able to help
  • Helping someone to know what choices they have and what the consequences of these choices might be
  • Enabling a person to have control over their life but taking up issues on their behalf if they want you to

Independent Advocacy is not:

  • Providing advice
  • Making decisions
  • Solving all someone’s problems for them
  • Making complaints
  • Helping fill in forms
  • Mediation
  • Counselling
  • Befriending
  • Care and support work
  • Consultation
  • Telling or advising someone what you think they should do
  • Speaking for people when they are able to express a view
  • Agreeing with everything a person says and doing anything a person asks you to do.


Ah well. Good morning folks! My chismosa friends would probably hate me for titling this blog in a clickbait kind of way. Hahaha! (No, I ain’t gonna mention anything not worth my space, babies!)

Meet the Rodriguezes! You can figure out which one is the mom, can't you? (Hahaha!)
