Restore public health funding for local breastfeeding support group.

This petition had 443 supporters

Four out of every five babies admitted to hospital under one year of age are formula fed. Tatamagouche Breastfeeding Support group has increased local breastfeeding duration rates dramatically. It is a grassroots group that should serve as a role model for every community in Canada. It provides accurate and updated information for parents as well as hands-on support from very knowledgable women and the crucial peer support that makes this program so successful.  The counsellors work voluntarily, however their budget of $4800.00 a year helps of offset some of their travel costs. As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant I was thrilled to learn of this group and how effective it has been when I moved to this community one year ago. Please help me save this invaluable resource not only for our community but for all rural communities in Canada.
