Happy World Breastfeeding Week!
This is the 25th year of celebrating World Breastfeeding Week!!! The theme for 2017, Sustaining Breastfeeding Together, celebrates everyone working together for the common good. When all the community partners work together to support breastfeeding families in their community, we are working for the common good and building stronger communities one family at a time. It takes all of us who believe in the benefit of breastfeeding for families, the community and the environment to make a difference. We cannot do it alone. Each of us will touch a family at a different point during their breastfeeding journey and each one will make a difference in that families’ life and experience. It really does take a village to sustain breastfeeding.
The goal for this website for Western North Carolina is to build a community for breastfeeding support. On this website, health care providers and families will be able to locate breastfeeding support that is available to them in their community. To assure that this goal is met, please join the mailing list and also submit your activities that support breastfeeding to the manager of the website so that the information can be shared across Western North Carolina.
