Let’s Talk About Chocolate Milk and Paint with MIOP

The Maternal Infant Outreach Program (MIOP) invites Black Moms to join us in celebrating Black Breastfeeding Week (August 25th – August 31st).

In the U.S., Black women have the lowest breastfeeding initiation rate compared to other women. Breastfeeding can provide many benefits to both baby and mom.

MIOP is committed to raising awareness on the benefits of breastfeeding to reduce the maternal and infant health disparities experienced in the Black community.

Moms, join us in a community dialogue of moms sharing their lived experience in breastfeeding and more. We will have activities for children, community resources, raffles, and light appetizers. Register here!

For more information contact MIOP Program Coordinator, Cynthia Washington, at cynthia.washington@austintexas.gov or call (737) 268-6312.
