Mission: Breastfeed Chicago, a parent-powered organization, supports breastfeeding through education, advocacy, and resource development in Chicagoland.
Vision: We envision a truly breastfeeding-friendly Chicago where all parents understand the benefits of breastfeeding and easily get the support they need to successfully breastfeed their children for as long as they want to. We do this by equipping families, health professionals, and communities with tools for successful breastfeeding; by advocating for breastfeeding-friendly practices from businesses, employers, hospitals and health care providers; by working to erase disparities in breastfeeding rates due to barriers such as race, age, income, sexuality, neighborhood and/or disability; and by using our influence as breastfeeding parents to normalize breastfeeding in our communities.
