We are a growing group of breastfeeding advocates made up of members and organizations in Northwest Indiana. With our mission of promoting awareness and empowering breastfeeding families, we have come together to start a positive change to prolong breastfeeding rates, increase breastfeeding initiation, and provide education to care providers and the general public about breastfeeding.
Our members and organizations include: area hospital International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs), North Shore Health Centers, Fagen Pharmacy, Medela, Latch Ladies, WIC (Women, Infants and Children), Couple to Couple League of NWI, and local mothers.
Interested in joining or know an organization that might? Membership is free for any individual or organization who shares our breastfeeding passion and advocacy. Our monthly coalition meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday at 6:00 PM at Spill the Beans, 7992 Broadway in Merrillville. All are welcome to attend. For more information, email us or phone a member.
