Coalition of Savannah organizations supporting mothers through National Breastfeeding Month

August is National Breastfeeding Month and Healthy Savannah, along with local advocates, is continuing its push to help support families with newborns and increase inclusivity in the workplace. 

Breastfeeding provides many benefits for infants and mothers, including lowering the risk of certain diseases such as asthma and type 1 diabetes as well as providing a boost to the baby’s immune system. For mothers, studies by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have shown that breast and ovarian cancer, as well as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure, are less commonly seen among those who breastfeed.
