Moms, babies ‘Latch On’ for breastfeeding awareness

The Doula SerNursing moms and mothers-to-be are invited to join the Big Latch On this Saturday morning at the Clova Cinema.

Nursing moms and mothers-to-be are invited to join the Big Latch On this Saturday morning at the Clova Cinema in Cloverdale.

The event features a 50/50 draw, a 35-minute movie called Breastfeeding – Making the Connection, and, of course, a mass ‘latch on’ of nursing babies in a show of unity and awareness.

It’s presented by the Doula Services Association of B.C. as part of World Breastfeeding Week.

The Big Latch On involves groups of breastfeeding women who come together at registered locations around the world to latch on their child at a set time.

Donations accepted at the door, but pregnant moms and nursing pairs get in free.

The event starts at 10 a.m. and the movie begins at 10:30 a.m. Don’t forget to bring your own cup and bowl for discounts on drinks and popcorn – made with real butter. The concession is cash only.

Doulas provide non-medical support to women and their families during labour, childbirth and postpartum.

For more information, visit bcdoulas.org, email info@bcdoulas.org, or call 1-877-365-5588.

The Clova Cinema is at 5732 176 Street.
