Mission: To make breastfeeding and parenting more informed and satisfying family experiences by providing ongoing education, emotional support, community service, and advocacy.
Vision: To see breastfeeding become universally recognized as natural and healthy. To ensure that women and their families have the knowledge and support they need to make informed choices about breastfeeding and feel empowered to do so.
Childbirth and breastfeeding are natural and healthy human experiences around which women deserve to be encouraged and supported to trust their innate abilities.
Comprehensive breastfeeding education includes disseminating evidence-based information about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and parent-infant bonding.
Offering information and support in a non-judgmental way that accepts every family’s unique situation helps ensure that mothers are empowered in their decision-making.
Women and their families have the right to high quality, accessible, affordable, culturally appropriate, and comprehensive breastfeeding information in their primary language.
A comfortable community setting is a sensible and appropriate place to offer breastfeeding support because it is familiar, safe, and convenient. Learning from and sharing with mothers who have breastfed their babies creates an environment where a mother can feel comfortable asking questions and reassured about her experience.
