Breastfeeding education with a twist planned this Sunday

Posted June 18, 2014

The Partners in Health and Wholeness Breastfeeding Collaborative will kick off this Sunday with a presentation of "Mama Juggs," a play featuring local performer Anita Woodley.

In an afternoon of free entertainment, the collaborative hopes to educate the community about breastfeeding and breast health. It all takes place at Martin Street Baptist Church in downtown Raleigh.

"Mama Juggs" is a one-woman play about the importance of breast health throughout a woman's life. Woodley, who stars in the show, shares stories from her own experiences with breastfeeding, breast cancer and body image.

There will be a Q&A session following the performance. Refreshments will be served.

The Partners in Health and Wholeness Breastfeeding Collaborative is a new group representing faith communities which believe breastfeeding is crucial to family health.

    I wasn't inspired to read anything about "juggs", thanks, as that is an offensive term for adult female breasts, but I did go to their website, which was silent about where they get their money.

    Look under the picture on the left and read the "Mama Juggs" performance and Q&A.
    From that story "The Breastfeeding Collaborative is a project of Partners in Health and Wholeness, an initiative of the NC Council of Churches. Funding has been provided by the John Rex Endowment. It's there on WRAL. Sometimes you have to do a little searching for yourself and not expect WRAL to do it for you.

    How much tax money does this "program" receive, WRAL? That would be a good thing to include in all future stories, actually.
