11, August 2018 - Capital City, Carnswell - Today, President Bannister signed a proclamation designating August as National Breastfeeding Month in Boshka. This is in hopes of creating awareness for breastfeeding and promoting it throughout the nation.
Breastfeeding contributes to the health and well-being of mothers. Breastfeeding mothers have quicker recovery after childbirth and have natural birth spacing, unlike non-breastfeeding mothers who have slower recovery from childbirth and an early return of menses. Women who do not breastfeed increase their risk of ovarian cancer by 26% and premenopausal breast cancer by 39%.
