Picnic in the Park

The Macomb County Breastfeeding Coalition, Breastfeed Macomb, and the Marvelous Milky Mamas are hosting a Picnic in the Park Sunday June 26th 2016 from 12-3pm. This is second annual event to help breastfeeding moms in the community feel comfortable and confident about breastfeeding, especially in public. Breastfeed Macomb is comprised of health professionals from the Macomb County Health Department, local Hospitals such as Henry Ford Macomb, private practice lactation professionals and breastfeeding moms. The Marvelous Milky Mamas is a social group run by breastfeeding peer counselors that provides mother-to-mother support. This year’s event specially focuses on the support moms need to make it to their breastfeeding goals. When moms feel well supported from their hospital, physicians, nurses, family members, friends, spouses and the community, they are more successful with breastfeeding. Breastfeeding helps everyone! Sure moms' and babies' health is impacted quite greatly but it also helps the environment and government. We are encouraging breastfeeding moms in the community to submit names of people, places, programs, groups etc. that provided this support and we will honor them at our 2nd annual picnic.
