The mission of the Chicago Area Breastfeeding Coalition is to encourage collaboration among Chicago area breastfeeding advocates in order to more effectively protect, promote, and support breastfeeding.

Our Goals:

To increase public awareness of the positive outcomes associated with breastfeeding for babies, mothers, and communities
