Breastfeeding Welcome Here Project

The Breastfeeding Welcome Here Project is focused on increasing awareness and public acceptance of nursing as normal by engaging area businesses, museums, and public venues to pledge support and put up signage welcoming breastfeeding in their establishment.  

By partnering with local businesses, the Breastfeeding Welcome Here Project encourages new and future moms to feel more comfortable nursing in public places. Here are some materials for more information and how to get involved if you are a breastfeeding advocate or a business that is willing to support breastfeeding moms and babies.  You can click on the following links to view and download these documents:

 Pinch of Prevention

A Pinch of Prevention is designed especially for PTAs, churches and other community organizations serving children and families.  It is a quick and easy way for a PTA president, parent or community leader to present action-oriented health and safety messages to a captive audience such as at a PTA or regular community meeting.  This program is a series of modules on various health topics that each include: 

  • a short 5-7 min. pre-scripted PowerPoint presentation
  • newsletter articlePOP_CoverArt.png
  • list of resources
  • handouts and flyers that you can give to meeting attendees
