Celebrating World Breastfeeding Week 2019
World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated from 1-7 August every year and this year's theme is Empower Parents, Enable Breastfeeding.
At Angel Maternity, we feel it's important to celebrate breastfeeding as we are aware breastfeeding is not easy, especially at the beginning. We hope by making gorgeous maternity clothes for pregnancy, breastfeeding and beyond, we are contributing to supporting breastfeeding women.
We know from our customers’ feedback that wearing the right clothing with easy access to breastfeeding can help women in feeling encouraged to breastfeeding. That's why we strive to keep on improving our nursing clothes and providing a variety of access for breastfeeding.
