In celebration of WHO/UNICEF World Breastfeeding Week, the Rhode Island Breastfeeding Coalition is hosting the 4th annual Born to Breastfeed event at Roger Williams Park Zoo. This event invites the community for a unique opportunity to explore the zoo by night and makes breastfeeding information and other family health resources available. In addition to the zoo exhibits and dozens of vendors, there will be music, performances, raffles, concessions, and more!
