~ Dedicated to breastfeeding support, education and advocacy in Missoula County ~
The Missoula Breastfeeding Coalition was formed in the spring of 2001. The Coalition's mission is to support and promote breastfeeding for families in the Missoula County and beyond. The MBC sponsors many community activities throughout the year including, the Breastfeeding Rest Stop tent, World Breastfeeding Week, and the Breastfeeding friendly Business Drive. The coalition also sponsors an educational event each year and offers lactation CEU’s to breastfeeding educators in the community.
