FORT HOOD, Texas – Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center’s Women’s Health Center will offer Fort Hood Soldiers and family members an opportunity to be a part of the “Big Latch On” event, where hundreds of women around the world will try to break the record for the most women breastfeeding simultaneously.


The event is scheduled for August 3 at 10:30 a.m. in the lobby of the Women’s Health Center adjacent to the main hospital.


The Big Latch On is a global initiative to promote breastfeeding awareness and is held the first week of August as a celebration of World Breastfeeding Week.


The CRDAMC Women’s Health Center provides each patient with compassionate, world-class family-centered care before, during and after childbirth. Darnall continues to be the delivery center of choice for military moms, with an average of seven births a day occurring at the MEDCEN.
