About

The Emerald Coast Alliance for Breastfeeding Support was formed in the fall of 2009 to bring together breastfeeding advocates from hospitals, public health, mother’s support groups, private practice, and the community to support breastfeeding on the Emerald Coast of Florida and surrounding areas.

Our Mission

Our mission is to improve community health, by providing collaboration, education, and resources for the support, protection, and promotion of breastfeeding on the Emerald Coast.

Goals

Alliance Goals

The Need

A network of breastfeeding advocates is needed to bring a unified voice to the support of breastfeeding moms by improving resource dissemination and education of community members as well as healthcare providers who need to keep up with current research findings and recommendations; by reducing community barriers to breastfeeding, and by increasing awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding to mothers, infants, and the community.

Meeting Information

We are a fairly new organization. We want to bring in new members and have quarterly meetings in locations around Pensacola at this point. As we become more solidly situated, we may move some of our meetings further east. We are looking for members, and you are welcome to contact us by email to let us know of your interest. Please go to our meetings page to get the dates of upcoming meetings: http://www.emeraldcoastbreastfeeding.com/about/meetings
