World Breastfeeding Week - Live, Love, Latch 2015 Family Celebration

World Breastfeeding Week Celebration presents Live, Love, Latch Lowcountry 2015; Lets Make it Work!! 

Let's Make it Work!  #WBW2015
On the 1 – 7th of August every year, to raise awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding and the need for global support, the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action organizes World Breastfeeding Week. World Breastfeeding Week, August 1-7, is celebrated in 120 countries and marks the signing of the WHO/UNICEF document Innocenti Declaration, which lists the benefits of breastfeeding, plus global and governmental goals. 

World Breastfeeding Week theme this year is “Breastfeeding and Work; Lets Make it Work!”

This year also marks the 25 year anniversary of the Innocenti Declaration!

Live, Love, Latch! events are designed to not only celebrate breastfeeding, but to also highlight community support. All in attendance at a Live, Love, Latch! event will be counted as participants, who declare their support of breastfeeding in their local community and beyond. 

Also, as an added goal, we will aim to break the previous year's record for number of breastfeeding supporters who came out in a show of support. Any one who attends will be counted - whether breastfeeding or not.
This celebration provides an opportunity to educate family, friends, healthcare providers and other community members about how they can support breastfeeding, and also emphasizes the value of the support network behind every nursing dyad.
