Celebrating breast feeding awareness

| August 5, 2013

COSHOCTON – Melissa Haarman talked about the positive and negative experiences she had while breastfeeding her two children and how she overcame her negative experiences, at the Community Baby Shower last Saturday, Aug. 3 at Kids America.

Jenny Philabaum, lactation consultant at the Coshocton Hospital, explained the different myths of breast feeding and encouraged all women who were considering whether or not to nurse to come and talk with her.

Local family-friendly resources in the community were on hand to pass out material related to their organization. Dr. Jha, a new pediatrician in Coshocton, was also present to introduce herself to the community and answer any questions. Door prizes were also handed out at the end of the shower.

The Community Baby Shower was sponsored by WIC and Coshocton Memorial Hospital.
