The IE Baby Friendly Hospital-Community Network is a collaboration of IE hospitals and community partners such as WIC, Public Health, Maternal Health Network and Black Infant Health, who come together to support the progress towards, the maintaining of, and the consistency of, breastfeeding friendly policies and practices across our counties, as we support the health of our Inland families through healthy first foods.
We are currently networking and sharing our journeys of being Baby Friendly and deciding future pathways to being compliance of SB402 not later than January 1, 2025.
For the past several months, our coalition has been working on a report that would share the San Bernardino County breastfeeding rates in hospitals and a clear understanding of the Senate Bill 402. With the collaboration and information from the California WIC Association and the UC Davis Human Lactation Center and IEBFC intern, Nicholette Lambert the report is ready for public distribution!
Please download, forward, and share!
We will continue the hard work partnership with our Coalition members to educate, advocate for, and market to communities with breastfeeding disparities.
IT'S UP TO ALL OF US...
The California Breastfeeding Coalition hosted a series of webinars this spring to provide evidence-based information and best practices related to breastfeeding in light of COVID-19. The CBC Learn series was funded by the California Health Care Foundation and supported by the California WIC Association and Inland Empire Breastfeeding Coalition.
