I got this letter yesterday from Medela. There are some free chats about breastfeeding coming up. I'm spreading the word. Anyone can join in on the chats! Happy breastfeeding!
Hi Mom Maven!
Celebrate World Breastfeeding Week with Medela, August 1st-7th. To help you continue your breastfeeding journey successfully, Medela is hosting two free live chats with breastfeeding experts on Tuesday, August 3 at 11:00 a.m. EST AND Thursday, August 5 at 4 p.m. EST via a toll-free number.

Maria has been with Medela for 10 years, is a Certified Nurse-Midwife, and has been a board-certified as a Lactation Consultant since 1985.

She speaks locally on various breastfeeding topics, including workplace lactation and breastpumps.

If you're interested in joining this live chat, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "MMM Live Chat" by August 2nd. Include your name and any questions you'd like to have answered during the call. We will provide dial-in information closer to the live chat date.
Do you have a pregnant or breastfeeding friend who'd appreciate advice from an experienced mom? Invite her to join the call, too! We welcome any and all breastfeeding questions. Our goal is to help you (and your friends!) successfully breastfeed. We look forward to seeing you there!
