In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week (celebrated October 1-7 in Canada) our lab partnered with the Winnipeg Breastfeeding Network a number of community partners to launch a provocative new local campaign placing life-sized images of breastfeeding mothers in public areas. The campaign features actual Winnipeg moms and aims to normalize breastfeeding in public. Read more about the campaign HERE.
