About Black Mothers’ Breastfeeding Association

BMBFA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community-based organization and the leader of many national programs aligned with the organization’s mission to reduce racial inequities in breastfeeding support for Black families.

BMBFA’s signature success is the Black Mothers’ Breastfeeding Club (BMBFC). BMBFC has run without interruption for nearly 15 years and has been replicated throughout the nation. BMBFA also boasts a school for community-based doula training, nationally accredited by HealthConnect One and approved by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

In addition to the Birth & Breastfeeding Leadership Institute, BMBFA is the high tech inventor of the BMBFA B’Right Hub, the virtual community for parent clubs. BMBFA is also the anchor organization for the Black Breastfeeding Caucus and co-creator of Black Breastfeeding Week. Amongst this distinguished work, BMBFA served as a contributing expert for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention by providing recommendations for the U.S. Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding; awardee of 2 Spirit of Detroit awards by the mayor and city council; and recipient of a Special Tribute from the State of Michigan for health equity leadership.
