If you haven’t heard about Nola Nesting’s event tonight, it’s not too late to treat yourself to a night out with fellow NOLA moms! Nola Nesting has partnered with East Jefferson Hospital to host a screening of BREASTMILK: The Movie. Produced by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein (of The Business of Being Born fame), this movie explores the cultural constructs that make breastfeeding daunting for so many women and examines why breastfeeding is such a hot topic in our society. The film follows a group of expectant mothers during their pregnancies, births, and their baby’s first year of life.
Doors open at 5:00 and the film begins at 6:00. New Orleans Moms Blog will be represented along with other local groups and businesses, including La Leche League. After the film, there will be a panel discussion and fun giveaways!
Tickets are still on sale; NOMB readers can score a 20% discount with the code momsrock.
We hope you’ll join us tonight for an insightful film, productive conversation, and some time to celebrate being a mother!
When: Tonight, 5:00-8:30
Where: East Jefferson Hospital, Esplanade Room 1
