“We would like to dispel the myth that moms feeding their babies in public is distasteful, because breastfeeding is the most natural and nutritious way to feed and nurture children,” said Laurie Ross, Director of Family Health Management at Cobb & Douglas Public Health. “We hope that this event will help educate new moms about the benefits of breastfeeding, and bring greater acceptance for breastfeeding in public. We encourage supporters and new moms to come together on this day to share their experiences with breastfeeding, and of course – to nourish their children together.”
