The Continuity of Care in Breastfeeding Support Blueprint

The Blueprint, developed with a public health lens, aims to increase local capacity to implement community-driven approaches to support chest/breastfeeding, centered on the needs of populations disproportionately impacted by structural barriers that leads to low rates of breastfeeding.

The goal of this resource is to ensure that chest/breastfeeding support services are continuous, accessible, and coordinated, and that community spaces are consistently supportive of chest/breastfeeding families.

 This resource is intended for any local-level organization and individual that interacts with pregnant and postpartum families.

Starting in November 2021, this website will be updated with resources frequently. If you would like to contribute with a relevant resource, please contact breastfeeding@naccho.org.
