About

Breastfeed_Chicago_Logo_s2RGBMission: We are a network of breastfeeding moms, lactation professionals, and like-minded organizations dedicated to supporting breastfeeding in Chicago through mother-to-mother support, resource development, and breastfeeding advocacy.

Vision: We envision a truly breastfeeding-friendly Chicago. We envision a Chicago where all mothers know the benefits of breastfeeding, and get the support they need to successfully breastfeed their children for as long as they want to. We do this by connecting moms with the information and resources they need, by advocating for breastfeeding-friendly practices by businesses, employers, hospitals and health care providers, and by using our influence as breastfeeding mothers to normalize breastfeeding in our communities.
