This piece on KPCC Southern California Public Radio featured our CinnaMoms program and the important role that breastfeeding plays in the lives of black mothers and babies.
Reposted from KPCC.org website:
Black moms are much less likely to breastfeed, compared to women of other races and ethnicities. That’s why maternal and child health advocates devote the last week of August to bringing awareness of the benefits with Black Breastfeeding Week
More and more local organizations, such as PHFE WIC’s very own CinnaMoms, are starting support groups with an aim to bring up breastfeeding rates for black women.
