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.

Lactation Success

Get information on breastfeeding basics, how to handle common challenges, and what you can expect from your baby while nursing.

Lactation Rights

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.

Back to Work

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

Healthcare Providers

Between education series, the new hospital initiative, as well as guidelines for health centers, CBC is a great resource for healthcare providers.
