Join us for a beautiful morning dedicated to #NormalizingBreastfeeding!

Join mothers worldwide as they latch on their babies at the same time (11:00 a.m.) to raise awareness and normalize breastfeeding. All are welcome to join us for food, fun and conversation with breastfeeding experts and peers. Global Big Latch On events take place at registered locations around the world, where people gather together to breastfeed and offer peer support to each other. Their friends, family and community join this celebration to promote and support breastfeeding. Volunteers from within the community host each location, hosting a Global Big Latch On event creates a lasting support network for the community. For more information about the Global Big Latch On, visit http://www.biglatchon.org.

Our Director of Breastfeeding, Katja Pigur, had this to say about the #2018MCCGBLO:

This was a true team effort and it all translated into a beautiful event with a total of 131 event participants, including community partners representing 21 organizations and companies. During the Big Latch On at 11:00am, synchronized with moms and babies all over the world,  28 moms latched their babies in Franklin Square. It was truly inspiring to see the room completely filled with mamas and babies! Breastfeeding families and partners alike expressed their enthusiasm and joy for this event.
