In honor of World Breastfeeding Week, the Hospital on August 1 at 10:30 a.m. will be part of “The Big Latch On”, an event started by the Women’s Health Action in 2005 to raise awareness about the importance of breastfeeding.


In the “Big Latch On” groups of women come together at registered locations across the globe to simultaneously breastfeed. Their participation is recorded in an attempt to break the worldwide record. Last year,14,536 children breastfed at the same time at 845 locations in 28 countries.  Hudson Valley is the only location in Westchester County.

To participate, moms are invited to come to the Dempsey House at 1992 Crompond Road, Cortlandt Manor, NY adjacent to the Hospital at 10 a.m. on August 1. The Latch-On will begin exactly at 10:30 a.m. Participants should bring blankets, pillows or cushions to sit on.
