It also serves to enhance a breastfeeding friendly community by providing breastfeeding curriculum for teachers, information for businesses to support breastfeeding mothers, and information for breastfeeding mothers regarding a supportive workplace.
This website is a volunteer project with plans for additional information. If you have suggestions for changes or questions, please contact us. We value your feedback!
