Breastfeeding is a great equalizer in health. Regardless of income status, when infants are breastfed, childhood illnesses such as ear infection and colds are less frequent and less severe. Breastfeeding also reduces the risk of chronic diseases including asthma, obesity diabetes, and leukemia. Exclusive breastfeeding is also a strong indicator for performing well in school. When women breastfeed, they recover faster after childbirth and have a reduced risk of both breast and ovarian cancers, heart disease and osteoporosis. Major sponsorship for this event is provided by River City Medical Group, Health Net, Liberty Dental and First 5 Sacramento. Click here to reserve your free tickets!
