The Pennsylvania Breastfeeding Coalition 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.
Exciting news! On December 29, 2022, The PUMP for Nursing Mothers Act, which extends to more employees who are nursing mothers the right to receive break time to pump and a private place to pump at work and makes other adjustments, was signed into law.
View the PUMP Act Explainer to learn more about these changes.
United States Breastfeeding Committee released State and Territory Breastfeeding Reports to educate policymakers and the public on the status of breastfeeding in states. This report compares Pennsylvania to national averages and reveals gaps in breastfeeding support.
