Central Coast Breastfeeding Coalition

THE VISION:

THE CENTRAL COAST BREASTFEEDING COALITION AIMS TO CREATE A HEALTHIER COMMUNITY THROUGH THE PROMOTION OF BREASTFEEDING AND CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT OF COMMUNITY RESOURCES AND SUPPORT FOR NURSING FAMILIES.

 

THE MISSION:

“Breastfeeding is an unsentimental metaphor for how love works, in a way. You don’t decide how much and how deeply to love — you respond to the beloved, and give with joy exactly as much as they want.”
— Marni Jackson
