The SFDPH Lactation Support Collaborative in partnership with Supervisor Katy Tang kicked-off World Breastfeed Week on August 1, 2017 at the San Francisco City Hall which included the opening of a month long photography exhibition that promoted the images of breastfeeding women in San Francisco.
Two local photographers, Samantha Brancato y Jennifer Longaway, generously donated their time photographing exceptional mothers to raise awareness about the importance of supporting San Francisco’s breastfeeding mothers. The mothers who participated in the exhibition gave us a glimpse into the most intimate and precious moments in their lives. The photographs are a celebration of their breastfeeding journeys that were messy many times but were totally worth it in the end! The events also included a city-wide breastfeeding photo contest.
