Each year, World Breastfeeding week is celebrated during the first week of August. From August 1st through the 7th, breastfeeding awareness and support is recognized around the world. The goal of WBW is to support, protect and promote breastfeeding for all.
WABA explaines, "The WBW2019 slogan, 'Empower Parents, Enable Breastfeeding,' was chosen to be inclusive of all types of parents in today’s world. Focusing on supporting both parents to be empowered is vital in order to realize their breastfeeding goals.
Empowerment is a process that requires evidence-based unbiased information and support to create the enabling environment where mothers can breastfeed optimally. Breastfeeding is in the mother’s domain and when fathers, partners, families, workplaces, and communities support her, breastfeeding improves.
We can all support this process, as breastfeeding is a team effort. To enable breastfeeding we all need to protect, promote and support it."
