We've Got Your Back Babe!

Every year, Americans donate billions of dollars to find cures for diseases, while breastfeeding—one of the single most important preventative measures against infections and life-threatening illnesses for both babies and mothers—is dead last in the race for funding. As a result, poor information to pregnant women, overwhelming barriers to breastfeeding, and a persistent lack of culturally competent care, cause millions of moms to needlessly suffer, struggle and ultimately prevent them from reaching their personal breastfeeding goals.

We are determined to put prevention first and give every mom and baby the chance to thrive! Breastfeeding USA, the Best for Babes® Foundation, United States Lactation Consultant Association (USLCA) and Kellymom are teaming up to ensure that more moms get individualized support, and can recognize and are able to overcome the barriers to breastfeeding and healthy infant feeding. We believe that Americans are tired of seeing expecting and new moms bombarded by misinformation, receive poor prenatal care and advice, and undermined every step of the way.

Won’t you take a stand for prevention and join us to raise funds and awareness to beat the prenatal breastfeeding Booby Traps®! We have two opportunities for participation.
