World Breastfeeding Week is Aug. 1-7, 2021. This year’s theme is “Protect Breastfeeding: A Shared Responsibility”.
World Breastfeeding Week is a global campaign to raise awareness and galvanize action on themes related to breastfeeding.
Breastfeeding improves the wellbeing of infants, children, and their breastfeeding parents. Our community shares the responsibility to protect and promote breastfeeding and Clackamas WIC is proud to be part of your circle of support. Our breastfeeding counselors are trained and experienced to help WIC moms in reaching their breastfeeding goals.
