Spread the Word that All Moms Need and Deserve Support

Breastfeeding is truly on the national radar: The Surgeon General's Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding has outlined the steps that families, communities, health care providers, and employers must take to help make breastfeeding easier. Now USBC (United States Breastfeeding Committee) needs your help to spread the word that all moms need and deserve support to make breastfeeding possible, and to document and share a variety of examples of this support in action.

Tell USBC your story about how you and your baby were supported to breastfeed, or what particular kind of support made all the difference for you. You'll automatically be entered for a chance to win a Graco® Pack 'n Play® Playard from Newell Rubbermaid—a company with a reputation for its comprehensive employee lactation program. The grand prize drawing will be held from among all stories received by 8:59 pm PT on Monday, May don't delay!

Tell your story about how you and your baby were supported to breastfeed!
