Each year, the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action promotes World Breast Feeding Week from August 1-7. The 2022 theme is Step up for Breastfeeding: Educate and Support. While there are benefits for breastfeeding, not all HG survivors are able to breastfeed.
The devastating complications of HG are numerous, the silver lining is that a great many of them are preventable with timely, effective, adequate medical care. To this end, the HER Foundation launched the 1 MOM Is 2 Many campaign.
At the HER Foundation, we’re celebrating World Breastfeeding Week 2020 is August 1-7. The week is a worldwide event intended to inform, educate, and engage individuals and promote the benefits of breastfeeding, benefits for the baby, mother, and planet. All women/parents have the right to be supported by society to breastfeed optimally. Support can come from families, communities, health systems and workplaces.
