Get Real About Breastfeeding

Get Real About Breastfeeding is a campaign created by the Ingham County Health Department incollaboration with Willow Tree Family Center and the Capital Area Breastfeeding Coalition.

Get Real About Breastfeeding celebrates mothers who breastfeed, acknowledging that breastfeeding is often not easy, reminding people that breastfeeding in public is legal, healthy, and normal, and encouraging others to provide support to breastfeeding moms and families.  The campaign seeks to combat misinformation and hurdles, encourage moms to start breastfeeding and continue breastfeeding, and normalize breastfeeding in our culture.

Read some stories from moms in our community about their breastfeeding journeys.
