Working Together for a Healthier California
The California Breastfeeding Coalition (CBC) exists to improve the health and well-being of Californians by working collaboratively to protect, promote, and support lactation and human milk feeding.
Since 2011, we’ve convened partners from across the continuum of care to enact sustainable and effective systems change while amplifying the voices and experiences of those who have been historically ignored.
Get information on breastfeeding basics, how to handle common challenges, and what you can expect from your baby while nursing.
California has some of the strongest laws and regulations in the nation to support breastfeeding and lactating individuals when they are in hospitals, in workplaces, in schools and in public places.

You have rights as a lactating person in the workplace. Employers, learn what you need to know about your lactating employess.
