The health benefits of breastfeeding are well recognized. When women breastfeed their babies, everyone wins -- our moms, our babies and our environment.
We asked women across the state of Alaska to share their words of wisdom about breastfeeding. We're sharing their thoughts with you. We hope it will inspire you and that you share this site with friends and family. It takes all of us to make breastfeeding the norm in our culture.
For breastfeeding help contact your local WIC agency at: hss.state.ak.us/dpa/programs/nutri/wic/Participants/WICFindClinicMap.htm or call (907) 465-3100.
