Babypalooza, UAB Women & Infants Center, and other mom groups are partnering to host The BIG Latch On Birmingham, Friday, August 3rd at 10:00 a.m. at Regions Field.
The BIG Latch On takes place worldwide during World Breastfeeding Week (August 1-7, 2018) gathering mothers together to breastfeed in public and raise awareness and support for breastfeeding. The BIG Latch On aims to strengthen support for breastfeeding and to improve the health of children and women around the world by making breastfeeding a regular part of day-to-day life at a community level.
The first 100 will get Babypalooza swag bags.
There will be other breastfeeding advocates with information including The Mother’s Milk Bank, The Crunchy Bean, Birthwell Partners, Bundles of Hope Diaper Bank, and Simon Williamson Clinic.
Everyone that registers and checks-in at the event is entered to win door prizes which will be given away onsite after the latch.
