The Global Big Latch On 2019

  • UNCW, Watson Atrium 601 South College Road Wilmington, NC, 28403 United States (map)

As part of World Breastfeeding Week, join Port City Breastfeeding Project and La Leche League as we hope to break last year’s record of breastfeeding moms! Learn more about the Global Latch On: Please arrive by 10:00 am so we will be ready by "latch" time at 10:30 AM.

Global Big Latch On events take place at registered locations around the world, where women gather together to breastfeed and offer peer support to each other. Friends, family and community join in this celebration to promote and support breastfeeding. Volunteers from within the community host each location, creating a lasting support network for the community. 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.

Global Big Latch On events aim to protect, promote & support breastfeeding families by: providing support for communities to identify and grow opportunities for ongoing breastfeeding support and promotion in local communities, raise breastfeeding awareness, helping communities positively support breastfeeding in public places. Our goal is to make breastfeeding a normal part of day-to-day life at a local community level, and empower communities to have the resources to advocate for coordinated, appropriate, and accessible breastfeeding support services.
