World Breastfeeding Week 2015 Celebration!

Confederation Hill, October 2, 12-1pm
12:00pm

Baby-Friendly NL, Breastfeeding Support-NL, along with other partners invite you to attend a breastfeeding celebration for World Breastfeeding Week 2015 (celebrated the week of Oct 1-7th in Canada).

THE PLAN:

We are hoping to gather as many women (and supporting family members!) as possible to breastfeed all at once (with concurrent events scheduled in other parts of the province) on Friday Oct 2, 12-1pm.

THE PURPOSE:

  1. To celebrate breastfeeding and World Breastfeeding Week’s theme… to support women to combine breastfeeding and work. Whether a woman is working in the formal, non-formal or home setting, it is necessary that she is empowered in claiming her and her baby’s right to breastfeed.
    AND ALSO…
  2. To thank the provincial government for continued funding to protect, promote and support breastfeeding families.


THE LOCATION:
We have permission from the confederation building to host this BREASTFEEDING CELEBRATION on OCTOBER 2, 12 noon! Tell your friends and family!!! We want BIG numbers!

STAY TUNED FOR MORE DETAILS!
Mark your calendars …and check our Facebook Events page periodically for updates (Link: https://www.facebook.com/babyfriendlynl) . We will discuss practical aspects such as parking, promotion, media spokes people, picture disclaimers, etc.
