2017 Breastfeeding Awareness Campaign


One of the foundations of Centering® is coming together and building community. As an organization we also believe in and value conversations, partnerships and collaboration. In our Centering groups, safe space is created for open dialogue on breastfeeding - where all families and choices are heard. Our message for this year's breastfeeding awareness month is:

Coming together with like-minded partners for the common goal of sustainable & safe breastfeeding for all families.

Keeping this message in mind and our values at heart, we have partnered with MomsRising to co-host two Twitterchats in August. We invite you to join us by following the Twitter handle #WellnessWed on the dates and times below. We look forward to these meaningful conversations on these timely topics.

If you have any questions or would like the list of the TwitterChat questions ahead of time, please contact nlewis@centeringhealthcare.org.

In addition to the Twitterchats, we invite you to spread our message through this Thunderclap campaign. A Thunderclap is a very simple crowd-sourcing platform that helps people be heard. It allows a single message to be mass-shared so it rises above the noise of your social networks. When audiences share the same messages at the same time, their friends and followers are likely to take notice. Think of it as an online flash mob or an online game of “Telephone.”

Follow these simple steps:

That’s it! Then on Friday, August 25th at 12pm (EST), Thunderclap will post the following message on your Twitter and/or Facebook feeds:

#CenteringTogether for the common goal of sustainable & safe breastfeeding for all families
