Founded by a passionate group of breastfeeding professionals. They came together 15 years ago with a need for lactation professionals have a place to gather and to share information and advocate for breastfeeding.
The Minnesota Breastfeeding Coalition (MBC) was formed in January 2006 following the first National Conference of State Breastfeeding Coalitions. Since that time we have grown to include 36 local breastfeeding coalitions! The coalition membership has representation from the state and local health departments, the WIC Program (the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children), hospital lactation departments, La Leche League, and other organizations and individuals who support and promote breastfeeding. The Minnesota Breastfeeding Coalition became a 501 (c) (3) public charity effective 2009 and is qualified to receive tax-deductible donations.
