Our Mission
To improve the health of the Greater Rochester Region by promoting breastfeeding as the optimal feeding choice for infants through education, advocacy, collaboration, and increasing access to support.

Our Vision

  • All healthcare professionals in the Greater Rochester Region will be knowledgeable about ways to, methods, or interventions that promote and provide support for breastfeeding.
  • Every woman will have access to the information, resources and support in all environments to enable her to breastfeed for as long as she wishes
  • The Rochester Regional Breastfeeding Coalition will be recognized as the key coordinating resource for breastfeeding issues and support in the Rochester Region.
