Project Aims To Eliminate Breastfeeding Stigma

A local dietician wants to erase the stigma surrounding breastfeeding in public. 

Giselle Powell of Horizon Health says they're piloting their Breastfeeding Friendly Community project in Quispamsis and they're hoping to roll it out in other municipalities as well. 

Powell tells CHSJ News, as it stands, many women don't feel comfortable breastfeeding their child when they're out of the house. She says moms should be able to breastfeed in the food court, at sports games, anywhere they want to.

The first week of October is Breastfeeding Week in Canada.
