World Breastfeeding Week Celebrated in PCSP

Earlier this month, on behalf of the Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s, Mayor Carol McDonald was pleased to proclaim October 1st – 7th, 2019 as Breastfeeding Week in PCSP.

We would like to send a thank you to the wonderful parents who participated in the events during this week, as well as the fantastic support team from Eastern Health, including: Janet Fox-Beer and Elizabeth Gruchy (Our Town’s Public Health Nurses), Tracy English (Regional Nutritionist), Lisa Roberts (Regional Lactation Consultant), and Brenda Oldford (Regional Manager of the Perinatal Program of Newfoundland and Labrador).

During the week, The Grounds Cafe at Murray’s generously provided their space to host a celebration for World Breastfeeding Week as well. Thanks Murray’s and to all who attended!
