In recognition of World Breastfeeding Week (Aug. 1 to Aug. 7), Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital invites new and expectant mothers to participate in a series of events.
Basket Raffle: Raffle tickets will be sold – cash only – for a chance to win one of two baskets. From Aug. 1st to Aug. 9th, those interested can purchase tickets at the mother/baby desk on the second floor of the Southwest Tower. Tickets are $3 for one and $5 for two. The baskets include:
• The Breastfeeding Basket: $50 Target gift card, breastfeeding pillow, breastfeeding cover, Haakaa manual breast pump, Harmony Medela breast pump, and other items that relate to breastfeeding.
• The Relaxation Basket: $60 gift card to Massage Envy along with one bottle of wine, chocolate, and other items that induce relaxation.
The winners will be announced on Friday, Aug. 9th at 2 pm on the first floor of the Southwest Tower. Also on that day, complimentary milkshakes will be served from 12 to 2 pm.
Lactation Goodie Bake-off: Participants also are encouraged to enter a baked item in the Lactation Goodie Bake-off. The recipe must include ingredients that are known to increase a mother’s milk supply, including fennel, barley, oats, brewer’s yeast, flaxseed, and/or almonds. If you wish to participate, bring at least five samples of your baked goods, including copies of the recipe, to the first floor of the Southwest Tower at 12 pm.
