Local Breastfeeding Supporter Meetings

Local Breastfeeding Supporter Meetings

MIBFN began hosting Quarterly Network Meetings in 2016 as an effort to bring local, regional, and statewide collaborators together around our common efforts as we work towards becoming a more breastfeeding-supportive state. With support from the Michigan WIC Division, these meetings have grown over the past 3 years to become an opportunity to learn, share, and connect among local and regional breastfeeding supporters. 

As we move forward in Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, initially published in our Letter to Breastfeeding Supporters, we are restructuring our Quarterly Network Meetings in alignment with our commitment to “listen”. In light of COVID-19, and in an effort to be responsive to the changing landscape of breastfeeding support services, these meetings have moved online, are held monthly, and are open to breastfeeding supporters from across the state. 

Who Participates

MIBFN collaborates with organizations and individuals to bring about actionable, system-level changes that are centered on the diverse experiences of Michigan families with young children.
