Yes, that's right..The Breast Express is coming soon to a location near you!
The Breast Express is coming here to Washtenaw County and will be at the Washtenaw County Health Department this Friday, June 22 from 1-4 pm.  According to the Washtenaw County Health Dept, the 40-foot pumpsuite on wheels is traveling across the country to celebrate women who nurse and pump and to drive greater community support for breastfeeding. Stops are scheduled in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.
 The Health Department is located at 555 Towner Street, Ypsilanti. Breastfeeding moms and the individuals and families who support them can stop by for free breastfeeding consultation, and to learn breastfeeding laws, babywearing, and programs that support health and healthy eating. Water, snacks, and farmers market samples will also be available. 
 Certified lactation consultant Gayathri Akella, MS, RD, IBCLC, and the WIC breastfeeding peer counselors will be on site to provide breastfeeding support and answer questions.
This sounds like an awesome event. Be sure to check it out Friday!
