The breastfeeding world can be overwhelming and moms who pump can feel like they don’t belong. World Breast Pumping Day is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the time, energy, and dedication pumping requires; it’s a chance to honour the love in every ounce. On January 27, 2021, people across the world will gather digitally to celebrate the fifth annual World Breast Pumping Day.
Wendy Armbruster, founder of Snugabell and creator of the award-winning PumpEase hands-free pumping bra, started World Breast Pumping Day in 2017 to help create a space for pumping moms to celebrate their accomplishments and find their digital village.
The theme of World Breast Pumping Day 2021, “Apart :: Together," acknowledges that although we can't gather to encourage each other in person, our digital villages can provide valuable support and care.
World Breast Pumping Day encourages pumping parents to feel pride in their accomplishments, even if what they achieve looks different than the accomplishments of their peers. Sharing our stories is an important part of normalizing pumping and breastmilk feeding. The normalization of breastmilk feeding is vital to our future generations. Breastmilk saves lives.
