Lehigh Valley Breastfeeding Coalition
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.
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.

1.) To educate on the benefits of breastfeeding
2.) To promote & provide access to breastfeeding resources
3.) To promote & support baby-friendly practices
