Breastfeeding Awareness Month

 August is a time to bring awareness to how well we support breastfeeding mums in our local communities. Traditionally, the Big Latch On has been an annual event where mums gather and breastfeed together simultaneously for an international count. This year will be different- for 2020, mums are encouraged to join virtual events from the comfort of their own homes. This can also mean mums gathering together to watch a virtual event together! You can find a list of NZ events at: https://womens-health.org.nz/blo/virtual-blo-2020/find-an-event/
