Our Vision
 
The Lehigh Valley Breastfeeding Coalition’s vision is to create a breastfeeding friendly culture and environment among hospitals, businesses, and local leaders that will lead to sustainable change in policies focused on promoting breastfeeding support, education, and the absence of formula-based product promotion.

 

 

 

Mission Statement:

 

The LV Breastfeeding Coalition will support local Hospitals to embrace the Baby-Friendly Hospital status and evidence-based practice thus improving the quality of care for Lehigh Valley mothers who choose breastfeeding as their preferred feeding method for their newborn.
