|The Minnesota Breastfeeding Coalition supports the goals of the United States Breastfeeding Committee, which are as follows:
- Assure access to comprehensive, current, and culturally appropriate
lactation care and services for all women, children, and families.
- Ensure that all federal, state, and local laws relating to child welfare and
family law recognize and support the importance and practice of breastfeeding.
- Increase protection, promotion, and support for breastfeeding
mothers in the work force.
We hope you find the resources on our site helpful. Please join us in our efforts to improve the health of Minnesotans by working to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding.
How can you help? We encourage you to join your local breastfeeding coalition or to start a coalition.
