Our Mission

Our mission is to promote, protect and support breastfeeding through education, outreach and advocacy in our community. .

Our History

The Breastfeeding Coalition of Palm Beach County was founded in 1992 in order to celebrate locally the "First Annual World Breastfeeding Week" sponsored by the World Alliance For Breastfeeding Action. The Coalition includesindividuals representing maternal/child health agencies, hospitals, childbirth educators, lactation consultants, non-profit organizations, businesses, health care professionals, and breastfeeding mothers. The Coalition has been active ever since and it has successfully completed many projects in our continuing effort to raise public awareness of the many benefits of breastfeeding.
