I went to the Momsrising conference last year and one of the many things I learned was that the NYC Department of Health had been awarded a sizeable grant to increase access to and information about breast feeding, particularly in low income communities.
A friend who is active in breast feeding awareness & support posted this info about a free doula training. Doulas are very helpful in supporting women to understand all their birthing and feeding options and can help support moms with breastfeeding.
What a great opportunity!
I hope that many people apply and participate in this training which is geared towards those who live in or near Bed Stuy and Brownsville.
