Breastfeeding Initiative

August Breastfeeding Observances

In August, we celebrate breastfeeding: World Breastfeeding Week, Indigenous Milk Medicine Week, Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Breastfeeding Week, and Black Breastfeeding Week. In honor of this, the Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health (MCAH) Division partnered with WIC to develop social media posts and graphics to promote the many health benefits of breastfeeding and chestfeeding.

Make plans now to join California's campaign to help raise awareness about lactation accommodation by using Facebook and Twitter that focus on lactation accommodation in the workplace.
