The Big Latch On 2018 is an annual event where women around the world gather to breastfeed and provide peer support to each other. Some goals of The Big Latch On are to promote breastfeeding as optimal nutrition for every baby, and to normalize breastfeeding. As a worldwide peer support and community development event, it aims to strengthen national and global support for breastfeeding and to improve the health of children and women around the world.
Volunteers from within the community host each location, hosting a Global Big Latch On creates a lasting support network for the community. Annapolis Area Doulas and Breastfeeding Works are sponsoring our local event event this year. We are proud to be sponsored by two local businesses that are dedicated to improving the lives of local women and children.
