SAMHD WIC applied for and will be receiving funds to open a Baby Café in San Antonio. The final federal approval is pending. This Baby Café will be located centrally all women will have access to it, not just WIC participants. We do plan on having satellite locations at WIC sites and want all WIC agencies in San Antonio to be involved, but the Baby Café will not solely be WIC based. We want all breastfeeding entities in San Antonio to be a part of the Baby Café and to refer mothers in need there. We hope to have the Baby Café up and running by October and we will keep the SABFC updated on the progress of the Baby Café. We do plan on hiring a RN, IBCLC full-time to help establish the Baby Café and to serve as supervisor there. If anyone is interested in the position it is posted to www.sanantonio.gov under the jobs/employment tab. We are really excited about this opportunity and want the SABC to be a big part of the Baby Café.

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.
