Cherokee Nation holds ribbon cutting at breastfeeding center

The Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma dedicated its new breastfeeding center on Wednesday.

The Cherokee Nation Women, Infants and Children Program Breastfeeding Services has been helping new and expectant mothers for several years. Now it has it's own building.

“We want our breastfeeding moms to feel special,” coordinator Brenda Carter told The Cherokee Phoenix. “They’ve chosen to breastfeed, and we want to make sure they have the support they need. That’s one of the big reasons for people to continue breastfeeding, the support.”

The center offers a relaxing and welcoming environment for nursing mothers.
