Breastfeeding: A Winning Goal for Life!

Breastfeeding: A Winning Goal for Life!

Main Header

Join the HHS Office on Women’s Health (OWH) in celebrating World Breastfeeding Week (August 1–7), a time for family members, friends, and employers to help breastfeeding mothers reach their breastfeeding goals.

Earlier this summer, OWH launched a national campaign for employers of nursing moms, particularly those in hourly jobs or settings that make pumping at work more challenging. The Supporting Nursing Moms at Work: Employer Solutions website features searchable resources from over 200 businesses across all major industries. During the first week in August and throughout the month, we are asking you to promote the campaign. Share campaign resources — such as videos, articles, and online toolkits — as a way to support a mom’s efforts to breastfeed when she goes back to work.

Looking for more breastfeeding resources?

  • The OWH Helpline offers trained lactation specialists who can address common breastfeeding questions and comments: 800-994-9662 (9 a.m.–6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday).
  • Find up-to-date breastfeeding content at
  • Use It’s Only Natural, a breastfeeding campaign for African-American women, including videos from real women and breastfeeding experts.
