The Pennsylvania Breastfeeding Coalition (PABC) was established in 1992 to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding as the cultural norm for infant feeding in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Our members come from many backgrounds and contribute time, energy, and expertise to activities that support breastfeeding families.

PABC is focused on supporting and growing locally-relevant breastfeeding coalitions across the Commonwealth.

Through our partnership with ZipMilk, an online directory for finding breastfeeding resources by zip code, we hope to promote greater access and connectivity to breastfeeding resources.
Breastfeeding must be welcomed in restaurants, businesses, workplaces, and wherever a breastfeeding parent would like to feed their child. PABC is actively promoting the Breastfeeding Welcome Here Pledge and campaign. Click here to learn more.
