In conjunction with nationwide efforts to promote the benefits of breastfeeding, Governor Kristi Noem has proclaimed August 1-7 World Breastfeeding Week in South Dakota. This year's theme is "Empower Parents, Enable Breastfeeding."

The South Dakota Department of Health invites businesses to take an online pledge to support nursing mothers. The department also offers Breastfeeding-Friendly Business Grants.
