Our mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of our community by protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding through education, outreach, advocacy, and service. We strive to make breastfeeding possible by working with mothers, businesses, health care professionals, and the community.

Mission Statement

The San Diego County Breastfeeding Coalition is a 501©3 non-profit organization that has been serving the San Diego bringing together health care providers, agencies, organizations, individuals, families, and other breastfeeding advocates to support, protect and promote breastfeeding who are passionate about making breastfeeding attainable for all families in the San Diego and Imperial Counties.

Because of your generosity, we will be able to continue to give scholarships for UCSD's Lactation Education program-- providing opportunities for more people to increase lactation support in the communities that need it the most! If you still would like to donate, click here.

Thank you so much to all those who attended, shared our event flyer, donated an item to the auction or raffle, and/or made monetary donations. Every single act of support helps contribute to our goal of making a positive impact in the lives of breastfeeding families across San Diego County.

We are still over the moon about how special the evening was. We were so grateful to share space with some of San Diego County's most committed and dedicated breastfeeding advocates.
