OUR PROJECTS & INITIATIVES
We strive to do it all here at OK Breastfeeding. Our Volunteer Organization provides a dynamic work environment where deadlines are met and goals are not only met, but they are exceeded. We work on many exciting initiatives to improve the lives of others, and are very proud of the work we do. Learn about our exciting initiatives, and what we are working on every day in order to promote change.
Baby & Breastfeeding Cafe
Due to Covid-19, the Breastfeeding & Baby Cafe has gone virtual. Go to the Cafe FB page for more info. The Breastfeeding Cafe is a safe and supportive place for nursing mothers and children to come and visit/discuss different breastfeeding questions and information. Just being around other mothers going through the same stages as you is such an immense support! There is a cafe in Penticton and several other Okanagan Communities.
Kelowna Milk Depot
Help us collect milk for BCW's Milk Bank. Milk from a baby's own mother is always the first choice. Donor milk is especially important for sick and tiny babies.
With this drive we hope to show the importance and need for local milk depots in our Okanagan communities!
For more information - please contact Lindley Granger by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 250-460-2515.
"It takes a village to raise a child". We know that breastfeeding rates increase in communities where mothers feel supported to breastfeed anytime, anywhere. We offer businesses and communities support to become 'breastfeeding friendly'.
The Baby-Friendly Initiative
The Baby-Friendly Initiative is a global WHO and UNICEF program to improve breastfeeding support for families in health care facilities (hospitals and health centres).
