Breastfeeding Welcome Here Project
The Breastfeeding Welcome Here Project is focused on increasing awareness and public acceptance of nursing as normal by engaging area businesses, museums, and public venues to pledge support and put up signage welcoming breastfeeding in their establishment.
By partnering with local businesses, the Breastfeeding Welcome Here Project encourages new and future moms to feel more comfortable nursing in public places. Here are some materials for more information and how to get involved if you are a breastfeeding advocate or a business that is willing to support breastfeeding moms and babies.
