The Lehigh Valley Breastfeeding Coalition | Local Non-Profit

The Lehigh Valley Breastfeeding Coalition is a nonprofit collaboration of hospitals, governmental agencies, lactation supporters, business owners, community volunteers, and moms. We  serve Lehigh, Northampton, and Carbon Counties and are open to anyone in the community interested in supporting mothers wanting to breastfeed.

Our website features:

  • a calendar of local support group meetings, classes, and breastfeeding related events
  • a resource guide for finding local lactation supports including IBCLCs, CLCs, helplines, and pumps and equipment,
  • information on healthcare, legal rights, and how families and employers can help support breastfeeding mothers.

We have a blog and connect to the community through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Google+.
