San Francisco City Hall | 1 Dr. Carlton Goodlett Pl., San Francisco, CA

Sustaining Breastfeeding-Together reminds people that as mothers & fathers, brothers & sisters, family, friends, and coworkers, everyone plays a part in supporting women to breastfeed successfully.

“The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies be exclusively breastfed for up to the first 6 months of life and continuation for up to 1 year or longer, or as mutually desired by mother and baby. Despite this recommendation and the well-documented benefits of breastfeeding, only 43% of mothers in San Francisco exclusively breastfeed at 1 month.”

The exhibition is also a celebration of San Francisco’s breastfeeding mothers and their babies. Each photograph tells us a story of a unique breastfeeding journey – a journey that is marked not only by sore nipples, cluster feedings and pumping at work but also by warm cuddles, milky giggles and a heart filled with the joy of giving their baby the best possible start in life. A journey that is messy at times but totally worth it in the end.

Although we can’t find the event on the internet, the promoter submitted the event for August 2.
