Celebrating World Breastfeeding Week

During this dedicated week of Aug 1-7, 2017 we honor and celebrate the beauty of women breastfeeding their babies. World Breastfeeding Week is about working together with our community, organizations, and local companies with the theme of “sustaining breastfeeding together.”  During World Breastfeeding Week, we highlight and bring awareness to the many benefits of women breastfeeding in societies around the world.

Together, we should help and support mothers whether nursing or pumping because of the multitude of benefits from improved immunization, nutrition, and bonding for mother and...
