Two Area Global Big Latch-On Events
Women will gather together to breastfeed and share support at two local Global Big Latch On events on August 3. Lactation Whisperer will host a gathering from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. by the pavilion at Centennial Park, in Fort Myers, and Family Birth Place will host an event from 10 to 11 a.m. at Cape Coral Hospital’s Special Care Nursery section in the Healthy Life Center in the Wellness Center of Cape Coral.
Part of the annual weeklong World Breastfeeding Week, this celebration promotes breastfeeding and improves the health of women and children worldwide, as well as advocating for breast milk as a sustainable resource. Volunteers from within the community host each event, helping create a lasting support network for the community. Other related initiatives include Working Wednesdays and Express Yourself. Organizers suggest participants arrive 30 minutes beforehand.
