Make Breastfeeding Your Business: An Action Support Kit
Make Breastfeeding your Business - video
Make Breastfeeding Your Business' is a 10 min video produced by Lindsay Corbin of the Pictou County Health Authority and Geordie Mott from Wooden Shoe Photography outlining the Make Breastfeeding Your Business: An Action Support Kit.
Throughout Nova Scotia, committees exist that provide leadership for the protection, promotion, and support of breastfeeding in local communities. The goal is for our Nova Scotia communities to become baby friendly, with breastfeeding becoming the cultural norm for infant feeding. Although it is recognized that breastfeeding is not an option for all women, by developing supportive spaces within our communities, barriers are removed that may influence women's decision to begin and/or continue breastfeeding their babies.
This kit has been created to help local businesses build their knowledge about
breastfeeding and provide tools to better support breastfeeding women whether they are employees or clients
This video has been made possible by the Pictou County Baby-Friendly Initiative (TM) Committee with financial support from the Pictou County Health Authority Community Health Boards
