5th Annual 'Lift Up Every Baby!' celebration held at Heritage Green Park
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- There was a special effort held on Saturday to help new mothers in Milwaukee.
The African American Breastfeeding Network culminated 'Breastfeeding Awareness Week' with their 5th annual 'Lift Up Every Baby' celebration.
It took place at Heritage Green Park near 62nd and Custer.
There were health and wellness stations where mothers could learn how to care for their babies and themselves.
The first 50 pregnant mothers in attendance also received a free gift.
"The idea is to bring a celebration around our health, a celebration for our community, and the health of our babies," said Dalvery Blackwell, Executive Director for the African American Breastfeeding Network.
The Breastfeeding Network also has monthly classes to help expectant and new mothers.
