August is recognized as World Breastfeeding Month around the globe. Global Big Latch On events takes place at registered locations worldwide, where people gather together to breastfeed and offer peer support to each other.
Hosting a Global Big Latch On event creates a lasting support network for the community. This is a time to celebrate women from all cultures and applaud them for their commitment to making breastfeeding the norm. WCCHD Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a designated host.
The event will be a free, outdoor, drive-through event. Community partners will be attending with education and services booths. There will also be many door prizes and gifts for attendees. The event is open to the public, not just WIC clients. See you there!
