Founder, The Upper Breast Side
The benefits of breast-feeding are legion (helping with baby’s immune and cognitive development, facilitating parental/child bonding, etc.), but its challenges are also numerous– especially for new moms unfamiliar with the process. After going through some of the frustrations of breastfeeding firsthand, Felina Rakowski-Gallagher decided to open a breast feeding boutique on the upper west side of Manhattan. Her store is cleverly named “The Upper Breast Side.” Her slogan: “You bring your breasts, we’ve got the rest.”
Jessica speaks with the ex- New York City cop turned breast feeding boutique owner about how Felina’s store grew from a business run out of her apartment to a premier destination for everything pertaining to breast-feeding in New York, from scratch.
