Just like that, the last quarter of the year is here! Because I had an office seminar for 3 weeks in September, I felt that the month slipped by.
October is equally busy! There are several learning events that you can attend this month. We will be celebrating October 5-13 as International Babywearing Week and the Filipino Association of Babywearers have organized a babywearing fair!
There are also 2 breastfeeding activities this month. The LATCH classes in The Medical City has started to be closed out, even before LATCH can advertise on its Facebook page. LATCH has recognized the demand for breastfeeding classes and has started offering bi-monthly breastfeeding classes outside Medical City, to complement our hospital classes. In August, it was in Makati. This October, it will be in Manila.
Finally, Velvet Escario-Roxas of Velvet Birth and Arugaan has been kind enough to offer her time for counseling. Thus, LATCH will hold its first ever support group session on 19 October 2013. This is for moms with babies below 4 months old. We will be organizing more support sessions for breastfeeding mothers so stay tuned!
