Mission and Vision

Mission and Vision

Mission: Breastfeed Chicago, a mom-powered organization established to support mothers in breastfeeding, works to build a cohesive and sustainable support network for breastfeeding mothers through the connection of resources, cultural normalization, and institutional 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.
