Annual Michigan Breastfeeding Walk set for Wednesday in Lansing

It makes children and their mothers healthier and stronger.  It boosts babies’ immune systems, protecting them from illness and infection.  It guards them against childhood obesity and diabetes.  It nurtures a unique mother-child bond.  It reduces women’s chance of breast and ovarian cancer and protects against post-partum depression.  Pediatricians, healthcare experts, and millions of mothers all swear by it.

What is it? It’s breastfeeding and the health department in Coldwater says it’s powerful!   

If you are a WIC mom, a breastfeeding mom and/or understand the importance of breastfeeding, the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency would like to invite you and your family to attend the Michigan Annual Breastfeeding Walk next week on Wednesday, August 6th, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., on the Capitol Lawn in Lansing.

A “Car” Van  is meeting at the Wal-Mart parking lot in Coldwater at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. Light snacks will be provided.

The official walk begins at 12:15 pm and will include a photo on the Capitol steps.

August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month and advocates in Michigan are celebrating recent passage of the Breastfeeding Anti-Discrimination Act, legislation that gives women the right to nurse a child in any place that is open to the general public.
