Let’s celebrate National Breastfeeding Week! October 1st – 7th
The World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) is a global network that protects, promotes and supports breastfeeding worldwide. Each year WABA selects a theme for World Breastfeeding Week and the 2019 theme is Empower parents, Enable breastfeeding.
Empowerment requires evidence-based factual information and support to create an enabling environment where mothers can breastfeed successfully. Breastfeeding is how nature intended our babies to be fed and when fathers, partners, families, workplaces, and communities support the mother, breastfeeding rates improve.
