Welcome to the

New York Statewide Breastfeeding Coalition 


  The New York Statewide Breastfeeding Coalition

is an advocacy, not-for-profit organization focusing on issues that affect breastfeeding. The NYSBC is an organization made up of lactation consultants, health care providers, regional breastfeeding coalitions and the major statewide maternal and child health organizations.



Statement from the Coalition June 2020:


The New York Statewide Breastfeeding Coalition would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of George Floyd on his violent and inhumane death. As fellow New Yorkers, and Americans, we acknowledge the anger and despair of the Black community, as well as other communities of color and wish to convey our commitment to solutions that enables families to feel safe from harm, to secure a quality of life that decreases the daily stress from centuries of racial injustice, and promotes the welfare of mothers and children. A healthy mother, baby, and family depends on the solidarity of all people to dismantle systemic racism, the driver of racial inequities that span the spectrum from housing, food, education, employment, health, and all aspects of life that are met with injustice and inequality. To fulfill our mission of promoting, supporting and protecting breastfeeding for all New Yorkers, we commit to joining others in ending racial injustice, racism and anti-Blackness. Breastfeeding is the foundation of health equality.
