In 2011, the Surgeon General issued a Call to Action2 which lists a hospital’s responsibility to assist women in their goal to successfully breastfeed, as it is in the hospital that women begin to fulfill their decision.

Nevada Breastfeeds Photo Gallery

2013 Gallery
2012 Gallery

For the past 3 years we have produced a Nevada Breastfeeds Calendar, which we distribute 5,000 copies annually to WIC clinics, hospitals, physician offices, and other public locations.  Our goal is to help normalize breastfeeding through beautiful photography.  This breastfeeding gallery displays the calendar photos, plus many more that weren’t included in the calendars. We greatly appreciate all of these families for participating in the photo shoots, as this project would not be possible without them.
