Mission Statement:

The purpose of the Quad Cities Breastfeeding Coalition is to:

  • Provide support to the breastfeeding family.
  • Increase public awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding.
  • Provide and promote accurate breastfeeding information and support to health professionals and the community
