La Leche League to host event Aug. 6

La Leche League of Patrick County will host a Live, Love, Latch! event on Saturday, August 6 at the Spencer-Penn Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
As part of the event, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about nutrition, parenting and baby wearing, participate in The Global Big Latch On and enter to win raffle and door prizes.
Live, Love, Latch! is a National Breastfeeding Month celebration presented by La Leche League USA and hosted by LLL Groups throughout the country.
National Breastfeeding Month is August 1-31.
Live, Love, Latch! events are designed to not only celebrate breastfeeding, but to also highlight community support. All in attendance at a Live, Love, Latch! event will be counted as participants who declare their support of breastfeeding in their local community and beyond.
Also, as an added goal, the group will aim to break the previous year’s record for number of breastfeeding supporters who came out in a show of support. Any one who attends will be counted—whether breastfeeding or not.
This celebration provides an opportunity to educate family, friends, healthcare providers and other community members about how they can support breastfeeding, and also emphasizes the value of the support network behind every nursing dyad.
This event is free and open to anyone supportive of or interested in breastfeeding.
