Welcome to the Minnesota Breastfeeding Coalition (MBC)

COVID-19 and Lactation Resources

It Has Been a Strange Year and Lessons Have Been Learned!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the usual MBC Annual Workshop and Conference did not occur as a 2-day, in-person event this year. Instead, there were several virtual events and more are in the planning stages. These events have kept us learning, in new ways, and growing despite COVID-19. Keep visiting the events section of this website for updates.
