A Breastfeeding Friendly Benalla
Latching Onto Breastfeeding Campaign
Benalla Health, the Tomorrow Today Foundation and Benalla Rural City Council are working to improve breastfeeding rates.
The Central Hume Primary Care Partnership "Latching onto Breastfeeding"campaign was launched to make Benalla a place where mothers feel supported to breastfeed.
The campaign focuses on messages of what dad/partners, family, friends, workplaces, health services and businesses can do to support women to breastfeed.
