The Aotearoa New Zealand Breastfeeding Week is part of a global event celebrating breastfeeding.
This week is about creating a "concerted global action to support women to combine breastfeeding and work. Whether a woman is working in the formal, non-formal or home setting, it is necessary that she is empowered in claiming her and her baby’s right to breastfeed."
Events in New Zealand include The Big Latch On (July 31 - August 1). Visit the event's Facebook page for details, and see the Women's Health Action website for more information, including for ways your workplace can become breastfeeding friendly.
