Join the WWBC Facebook Group!

Our Purpose: 

  • To encourage and support breastfeeding mothers in the community, workplace, and schools.
  • To foster community acceptance of breastfeeding through community education.
  • To strengthen support for breastfeeding within healthcare systems.

We support breastfeeding mothers! 

How:

  • Providing education resources to make breastfeeding an enjoyable and successful experience.
  • Information for businesses on supporting breastfeeding mothers as they return to work.
  • Providing information on electric breast pumps to support mothers that need to be apart from their baby.

Why:

  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months, and that breastfeeding continue for at least 12 months and beyond.
  • Mother’s milk is the ideal nutrition for babies. It has the right mix of fats, carbohydrates and proteins, plus antibodies to protect baby from infection.
  • Babies are born to be breastfed!

Membership  Membership is open to anyone who supports the purpose of the coalition. To join, or for more information, contact Abbie Loos.
