Supporters of breastfeeding

I would like to express my gratitude to both Dave Moller and David Torch for their coverage at the Breastfeeding Awareness Walk, Wednesday, July 18, sponsored by the Breastfeeding Coalition.

It was quite a rainy day and yet we had a fantastic turnout; many devoted families bundled up to show their support for breastfeeding in Nevada County. I would also like to thank our speakers Arly Helm, IBCLC and Dr. Joseph Iser, health officer of Nevada County. I have been asked many times if we will be doing this event next year and the answer to that is a resounding “Yes!”
