Our vision is that:

  • Breastfeeding will be the norm in San Diego County for at least the infant’s first year of life and preferably longer.
  • All healthcare professionals in San Diego County will be knowledgeable about, promote, and provide support for breastfeeding.
  • Every woman will have access to the information, resources and community support necessary to breastfeed for as long as she wishes.
  • The San Diego County Breastfeeding Coalition will be recognized as the key coordinating resource for breastfeeding issues and support in San Diego County.

 

Values:

  • Breastfeeding is a health, social, ecologic, and economic resource for our community.
  • Mothers have the right to make an informed choice regarding their infants’ feeding.
  • Community acceptance and support are integral components of breastfeeding success.
  • Health professionals, business leaders and policy makers have a vital need for access to breastfeeding information, and play a critical role in the support and promotion of breastfeeding.
  • Breastfeeding is an integral component of parenting, and the family an essential part of breastfeeding support.
  • Mother-to-mother support, peer counselors, doulas, childbirth educators and other support persons play a vital role in promoting and supporting breastfeeding in the community.
  • We provide current, accurate, scientifically valid and culturally sensitive information.
