It’s August again and we are approaching World Breastfeeding Week and our National Breastfeeding Month has begun.
Today was our local Big Latch On we had 9 latches many more moms and kids. Our local online support group has over 900 members with many active participants. We have a group of women that have taken a course and become breastfeeding councilors, as part of our hospital working with a grant from NICHQ to become Baby-Friendly. We have around 3 breastfeeding support groups throughout the community, and we will be adding one more to support the valley area by the end if the month. 3 years ago there was no were near this amount of support. Some of the medical personnel in the area is being dragged kicking and screaming but now there is enough strangth to drag them!
This village is coming together around its mothers and babies and I am so proud to be part to this moment in history were we take control of our fears and rawr like tigers… Or trumpet if you choose.
