Oh my, aren’t I happy and super excited! These past few weeks after our amazing success with our very first Big Latch On in Times Square we have actually been planning our next event on the beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard.
The island has been our home for quite a while and it is my relaxing gateway during summer time. I remember during my pregnant days how much I loved being able to work with the nurses and doctors from the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital who gave me great advice and support when I most needed it.
I remember meeting just a few moms on the island who gave birth and breastfed but all of them were done nursing by the third month so it caused me a bit of surprise.
After our past Big Latch On I saw the importance of continuing to work towards our goal of promoting and normalizing breastfeeding and I knew hat reaching small communities were, although breastfeeding is supported it is not widely practiced, was important for the breastfeeding world on the island.
Considering that August is Breastfeeding Awareness month we will be celebrating it our own way! Best Milk? Mom’s Milk is an initiative created by us Breastfeeding World with the help of the Maternity Ward from the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital and the Breastfeeding Network on the island. We will be uniting forces to encourage islander mother’s to take the path of nursing their little ones and we truly hope to reach as many current breastfeeding moms to join us. We will have a super amazing event including raffles, giveaways, Breastfeeding Counseling, discounted photo packages for a memorable breastfeeding photo session with Alegares Photography and most importantly we will have a free group picture, we want to photograph Martha’s Vineyard’s Breastfeeding World.
Best Milk? Mom’s Milk will take place on Wednesday August 26 at the YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Thankfully we have been able to collaborate with some great businesses from around the country that believe in the beauty and benefits of breastfeeding so please give it up for our amazing sponsors who have made our upcoming raffle possible! Thank you for supporting our cause!
We had the amazing collaboration of two island businesses: CITRINE MV & MADE MV thanks for pledging your support to the island’s breastfeeding community!
Make sure you join us for this super fun event and invite all of your pregnant moms to come and learn some great breastfeeding tips.
