The San Diego County Breastfeeding Coalition (SDCBC) is a non-profit association of health professionals formed in 1994 to promote and support breastfeeding through education and outreach to the San Diego community. The SDCBC provides timely and accurate breastfeeding information to healthcare professionals through conferences and trainings, educational materials and other outreach efforts. We offer our services to hospitals, medical offices (pediatric, family practice and OB offices), county health departments, WIC sites and other organizations and individuals that provide lactation services.
