This booklet is part of a series of five Learning from Stories booklets, in which the actions being taken in Ontario to support breastfeeding were surveyed using a Healthy Communities Approach, and the qualitative results of the interviews gathered into stories by the interviewers/writers, in the hope of inspiring and helping service providers in Ontario to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding.
Women are still often made to feel uncomfortable while breastfeeding in public or asked to leave public places such as restaurants or malls. This booklet gathers inspiring stories of service providers and public health officials efforts to reduce this barrier to breastfeeding exclusivity and duration by striving to increase public awareness.
Also available in French.
