The Wichita Birth Alliance and the Wichita State University School of Nursing is hosting a screening of “Breastmilk – The Movie” at 7 p.m. Aug. 7 at the Eugene M. Hughes Metropolitan Complex, 5015 E. 29th St. North, according to a news release.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion by breastfeeding experts, including Barbara Morrison from Wichita State; Gwen Whittitt and Marcia Streiff , lactation consultants; and a LaLeche League participant.
The film exposes “the real-life predicaments that frequently make it difficult for women to achieve their goals” with breastfeeding and also discusses how politics and social values shape women’s choices to breastfeed or not to breastfeed, according to director Dana Ben-Ari.
The film’s executive producer is Ricki Lake, an actress and TV personality, who was also executive producer of the documentary “The Business of Being Born.”
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Those who attend are encouraged to donate $10. Babies and children are welcome to attend.
