    Save the Date!  Join the Maryland Breastfeeding Coalition as we celebrate Breastfeeding Month and Black Breastfeeding week on Tuesday, August 27th at 5:15 pm at Sinai Hospital for a screening of the new documentary Chocolate Milk.  Told through the narratives of three African American women: a new mother, a midwife and a WIC lactation educator, the film seeks to answer the longstanding question of why more African American women are not breastfeeding. The film will be followed by a discussion about the realities of being a Black breastfeeding mother and how we can work together to better support this community.
