MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Moms around the world plan to take a stand for breastfeeding, and at least three locations in the Mid-South will join the movement.

The event is called Latch On. It calls for breastfeeding mothers and children to latch on for one minute at a designated time.

The hope is that continued support and awareness will help redefine social norms and get rid of any stigma surrounding breastfeeding.

Locations in Dyer and Fayette Counties have posted their support on the Latch On website.

Starting at 9:30, mothers can go to the Fayette County Health Department to join the movement. Similar events are scheduled to start at 10 at the Carmike 9 Cinema in Dyersburg and at Shady Acres Park in Trenton, Tennessee.

In Memphis, a Latch On event is scheduled for August 8 at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital Auditorium.
