August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month, so today, several mothers gathered in Harrisburg to celebrate.
Physician General Dr. Carrie Delone spoke at the Captiol Rotunda to remind mothers about the importance of breastfeeding.
Several other mothers discussed their personal experiences and how they are working together to promote public awareness.
Something else to celebrate during this year’s World Breastfeeding Month…
A new study shows women who breastfeed may be cutting their risk of Alzheimers Disease by up to two thirds!
A Cambridge University study found that benefits increase with longer periods of breastfeeding as well.
When compared to women who did it for only four months — those who breastfed for over a year lowered their risk of having the disease by twenty percent.
