Mark your calendar and plan to join us in this year’s celebration at the West Georgia Annual BIG Latch On where you can find local breastfeeding support and resources. This year’s event will be held indoors at City Station from 9-11 am. We will have music, kids’ activities and door prizes.
On Friday, August 2nd and Saturday, August 3rd at 10:30 am thousands of breastfeeding women and their babies/children across the world will gather in their own communities to take part in the Global BIG Latch On, a synchronized breastfeeding event in multiple locations.
Nursing From The Heart in partnership with the West Georgia Breastfeeding Task Force invite friends, families and members of the community to come join us to help raise breastfeeding awareness, knowledge of local resources and peer to peer support in West Georgia. We are excited to be hosting in collaboration with the Department of Public Health District 4 Women, Infants and Children (WIC) to reach and support even more families this year. Please help us spread the word by sharing with mom groups, family and friends by word of mouth, Facebook and posting a 2019 BLO Flyer in your neighborhood and surrounding communities.
