Breastfeeding Welcome Here Project

*Breastfeeding Welcome Here Project *
In partnership with local breastfeeding coalitions across the state, the Louisiana Breastfeeding Coalition (LBC) is working to create supportive environments for breastfeeding mothers and employees through the Breastfeeding Welcome Here project.

The purpose of this project is to create and highlight breastfeeding-friendly establishments for mothers and their families and to provide support (time and space) for the employees of those establishments. This project will help to provide comfortable, shame-free areas such as shopping venues, libraries, and restaurants, so nursing mothers will be able to have the freedom to be away from home longer and support businesses in their communities. read more
