Kane County Breastfeeding Coalition
Community partnerships improve the health and well being of all Kane residents.

The Kane County Breastfeeding Coalition is an essential health partnership to help achieve the 2030 Kane County health vision:
“To have the healthiest residents in Illinois!”  
 
The Coalition is formed by participants from diverse aspects of the community, including the local hospitals, community health centers, WIC Programs,  the Kane County health department, private lactation consultants, community groups that promote breastfeeding, and others.

Community members are welcome to join us as we meet monthly to increase the proportion of infants that are breastfed throughout the county.
 
Mission
The mission of the Kane County Breastfeeding Coalition is to engage all interested community members in improving health by making breastfeeding information and support available to new parents. The goal is to help parents make informed choices about breastfeeding as early as possible during pregnancy and to support that choice as soon as the baby is born.
