Milford Regional Celebrates World Breastfeeding Week

World Breastfeeding Week 2013 is August 5 through 9. The theme this year is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers. This theme highlights the significance of providing support to breastfeeding families. In celebration, Milford Regional invites the public to view one of two displays that will be set up from August 5 through 9 throughout the medical center (in the main lobby, and the lobby of the Hill Health Center.) The displays will have information to take and anyone who visits one of the displays can enter a free drawing for a basket of breastfeeding products. The drawing will be on Friday, August 9 and the winner need not be present. The names and phone numbers collected for the drawing are for the drawing only and will not be shared with outside interests or companies.

For more information, contact our lactation consultants at (508) 422-2960.
