Breastfeeding Celebration

Texarkana, Texas: Wadley Regional Medical Center will be hosting its 2nd Annual Breastfeeding Celebration on Tuesday, August 7th from 4:30 – 6:30 pm.   The event will be held in the main lobby of the hospital and will boast approximately 20 vendors that provide services or products that benefit the breastfeeding mom and new or expectant moms.  Every vendor will be providing a door prize that will be drawn for at the end of the event.  Each child will receive a book and there will be a coloring station for children.   There will also be demonstrations on how to handle a child who is choking as well as demonstrations on CPR.

Wadley has long been known as the Birth Place of Texarkana and was the first hospital in Texarkana to become a Texas 10 Step hospital and a Mother-Friendly Worksite.  “Promoting breastfeeding is important and we want to do all we can to support our moms who have chosen to breastfeed,” says Carlotta Endsley, Wadley’s certified lactation consultant. “There are many benefits of breastfeeding for both mom and baby.”
