Join Bellani Maternity for Cookies & Milk!:
Build Breastfeeding Awareness to Save Lives!
Wednesday, August 8, 9-11am, Warwick, RI

The simple act of breastfeeding can help save lives. By increasing breastfeeding rates around the world, we could save 1.3 million children annually and reduce mortality rates by 22%. This year's World Breastfeeding Week aims to save one million babies across the globe by building breastfeeding awareness. The Warwick, RI-based pregnancy resource center Bellani Maternity is hosting an official site for the World Breastfeeding Wave. In this worldwide event, women from across the globe will breastfeed at 10am (their local time), resulting in a 24-hour wave of sequential breastfeeding all the way around the world!

The event is held as part of World Breastfeeding Week, celebrated in over 120 countries worldwide on August 1-7. This year's goal for the awareness-raising event is to spread the word that immediate initiation of breastfeeding and exclusive breastfeeding for six months can save more than one million babies.

To help show our support, breastfeeding moms are gathering at Bellani Maternity at 1276 Bald Hill Rd., Warwick, RI (across from Target) on Wednesday, August 8 from 9 to 11am, for "Cookies & Milk." Have fun with other moms and families while we spread the word about breastfeeding. The synchronized feeding will take place at 10am and registration starts at 9am. For more info visit www.bellanimaternity.com or call Bellani at 401-234-1279.

Please note: no bottles, teats, pacifiers, milk or babyfood products will be allowed on-site during the event. These items will disqualify Bellani from participating in the World Breastfeeding Wave.

World Breastfeeding Wave Hits Rhode Island:
Lactation Resource Center Saves Lives with “Cookies & Milk”

Warwick, RI – On Wednesday, August 8, 15 local mothers gathered at Bellani Maternity to breastfeed at 10 am sharp. They joined in a worldwide first – the largest synchronized breastfeeding in history. Other mothers came to show their support, and it turned out to be a great community event for mothers with young children!

The event was held as the culmination of World Breastfeeding Week, celebrated in over 120 countries worldwide from August 1-7.

The mothers, friends and families enjoyed sing-a-longs, and cookies donated by Providence’s Meeting Street Café while they learned more about the importance of breastfeeding.

“We’re here today to applaud the women of Rhode Island who’ve made the challenging commitment to feed their children as nature intended, and to support others in their decision,” said Kelly LaChance-Guertin BA, CCE, CD (DONA), CLC, Bellani’s Co-owner, and Co-founder in her address to Cookies & Milk’s 15 participating mothers.
