Our Team

We are driven by a passionate Board of Directors and dedicated projects team, representing all regions of Michigan and many breastfeeding stakeholder groups. In almost 10 years as an organization, we have made remarkable progress in our vision to ensure that state and local communities recognize breastfeeding and human milk as the norm for infant and young child feeding. With continued support, MIBFN can pursue its goal that all families live, work and receive support in a breastfeeding-friendly culture.
