Five years ago the 40 founders of Breastfeeding USA watched their dream unfold, and although separated by thousands of miles, they celebrated in all corners of the United States and announced a brand new mother-to-mother support organization. On December 10, 2010 our Facebook page went live, with well wishes and sharing of future plans. Two days later the website launched and the organization began accepting memberships from volunteers, and on December 14, from the public. 175 people joined as founding members.
In the years since, we’ve grown to almost 600 member supporters. We hope to gain more community supporters during our December membership drive. If you haven’t joined us yet, please consider what the founders wrote on Facebook five years ago, and be a part of our success. We need your financial support to be the organization that breastfeeding families want and deserve.
