About Us

 

In April of 2006, representatives from various community and healthcare disciplines established the San Antonio Breastfeeding Coalition (SABC). SABC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit broad-based network of breastfeeding advocates committed to working together on the design and implementation of practical, evidence-based strategies to promote, support, and protect breastfeeding through education, outreach, and advocacy.

 

SABC is recognized as a coordinating resource for breastfeeding support and education in the San Antonio area. Our desire is to involve the entire community in making a difference for breastfeeding families. For more information about our vision and organizational goals go to Our Vision page.

 

Join SABC for only $15 per year and have access to a wealth of information and opportunities to network with breastfeeding advocates and professionals from San Antonio and across the State. The success of this organization depends upon the number and strength of our members, so please join our team! Join now

 

Corporate partners are also needed to contribute to our success! Partners are for profit, public or nonprofit organizations that contribute in kind or financial resources to help SABC reach it’s goals. If you are a part of an organization that would like to partner with SABC please contact us.

 

We thank you in advance for your contribution to making our community healthier by promoting, supporting and protecting breastfeeding! Hope to see you at our next meeting or event.

There are many ways that communities can support mothers and babies that breastfeed, and everyone plays a role. The CDC Breastfeeding Report Card brings together state-by-state information to help tell the story of breastfeeding practices and supports in states.
