This year’s slogan for World Breastfeeding Week is Breastfeeding: Foundation of Life, highlighting breastfeeding as the foundation of lifelong good health for babies and mothers (WABA – World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action).

Global Health Media Project supports breastfeeding worldwide with teaching videos for both health workers and mothers. We now have breastfeeding videos available in 27 languages, and narration is underway for 12 additional languages.

The videos for health workers teach them how to observe breastfeeding so that they can provide mothers with better guidance on how to position and attach their baby as well as manage common problems. The videos for mothers show them best practices in a way that is easy to understand and follow.
