This year's World Breastfeeding Week theme is “Breastfeeding and Work: Let’s Make it Work.” The theme addresses a growing necessity: Whether a woman is working in the formal, non-formal or home setting, it is necessary that she is empowered in claiming her and her baby’s right to breastfeed. There is no cost to participate. There will be food, games and giveaways. Mothers attending will also get some much deserved pampering from students of Olympian University of Cosmetology.
