The San Diego County Breastfeeding Coalition (SDCBC) originally started in response to the lack of proper lactation education for healthcare professionals such as physicians, nurses, midwives, pediatric dentists, etc. This lack of education results in very poor support and promotion of the documented benefits of breastfeeding–the healthiest start for a baby.
For over 25 years, it has been the SDCBC’s vision that all healthcare professionals in San Diego County will be knowledgeable about, promote, and provide support for breastfeeding. Hosting multiple seminars every year is one of the ways we can ensure all healthcare professionals have the opportunity to receive current, accurate, scientifically valid, and culturally sensitive information.
