World Breastfeeding Week is an annual celebration held from August 1st-7th in over 170 countries worldwide. During the week events are held, mothers share stories and encouragement and lots of breastfeeding images are shared across all social media platforms. This year is Myrtle Beach Birth Services’ first year participating in the festivities and it has been amazing seeing all the things organizations, businesses and families are doing to not only celebrate breastfeeding, but also encourage and support mothers at all stages of breastfeeding.
We have a couple events going on that are sponsored by our very own MBBS providers. First is the Nurse On Myrtle Beach event which will take place Thursday August 7th from 1-3pm at the Barnes & Noble in Market Common. This event is sponsored by IBCLC Julee Krechel and Southeast Maternal Medical. There you will find information and support on breastfeeding as well as a collection of breastfeeding related vendors and other breastfeeding moms to connect with.
The other event we have going on this week is sponsored by Whitney Hempsey of Studio412 Imagery. Studio412 is giving away a free breastfeeding mini session to one lucky nursing mother and her baby/ies. To enter the giveaway just stop by the website and follow the instructions at the bottom of the page in the rafflecopter widget.
