Medford, Ore. — Rogue Valley mothers are coming together as part of an international event to raise awareness for breastfeeding.

The Big Latch On 2014 is calling for nursing mothers worldwide to nurse their children at the same time.  All of the breastfeeding women and children are latched on for one minute at a set time.  They are then counted by witnesses to see if they can beat the previous Big Latch On records.

The goal of the event is to support nursing mothers and raise awareness about the benefits of nursing.

You can take part by heading to Providence Medford Medical Center on Friday at 10 a.m.  The hospital says you should go to the main lobby and follow the balloons to Mary Norbert Hall.
