Monday, August 3, 2015
Every year, the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action organizes World Breastfeeding Week to raise awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding and the need for global support.
To mark this occasion, on July 31 and August 1, 2015, at 10:30 am, thousands of breastfeeding women and their babies/children across the world will gather in their own communities to take part in the Global Big Latch On, a synchronized breastfeeding event. Grace Health is hosting a location at their Battle Creek location.
The first Big Latch On took place in Aotearoa, New Zealand in 2005, it was introduced to Portland, Oregon in 2010 by Small Beginnings Group LLC and has now taken off globally.
