What I Read Banner

 

 

August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month. Within the month of August, the first week is World Breastfeeding Week, and the last week is Black Breastfeeding Week. The goal of these observances is not only to inform and empower women in their childbearing years but to highlight the critical importance of community support for breastfeeding success.

 

 

 

Part of the United States Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) 2018 campaign’s call to action is to spread awareness that everyone can help make breastfeeding easier, and KHCPL has resources for new mothers and mothers-to-be as well as their partners, relatives, and friends. There are over a dozen books in the library's collection on the topic of breastfeeding as well as a DVD. These materials offer information, guidance, and troubleshooting assistance.

For additional support, Howard Community Hospital offers a breastfeeding drop-in center on Friday mornings as a free community service.
