A collaborative campaign with Smiles n Drool to celebrate National Breastfeeding Week 2018.
We believe that representation matters and seeing other black women confidently breastfeed well past infancy is one of the best ways to not only normalise breastfeeding globally but in the black community specifically.
England’s National Breastfeeding Celebration Week, run by Public Health England (PHE), will take place 25 – 29 June. The week will focus on celebrating the benefits of breastfeeding and promoting the role that all healthcare professionals, commissioners and managers have in advising and supporting mothers to take up and continue breastfeeding for at least the first 6 months of their baby’s life. The week will look at the evidence that exists, showing breastfeeding’s wide and positive impact on a baby’s development, from strengthening immunity and providing nutritional value to emotional bonding and building mental resilience.
