August is my most favorite month of the year and I am sure you can guess why. It is breastfeeding awareness month and it is the month when I get to promote the reason for why this blog exists. This year's theme for World Breastfeeding Week is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers and you can read more about that here.
I am pleased to share about kick-off activities that support breastfeeding month that will be starting this July! There will actually be more activities in August and I am excited to share them with you in a future blog post. But for this month, let us focus on a peer counsellor training and a milk sharing activity.
Along with Mylene and Shirly/Emily, we quickly mobilized with people I met during my May trip. I love Facebook because of how easily we can connect and after creating a group chat and adding people, the training is now a reality. Would you believe that this peer counseling training was organized in just 2-3 weeks?
August here we come!
