Black Mothers’ Breastfeeding Club® Replication
Black Mothers’ Breastfeeding Club® is a unique model that has a documented history of success. Our community-based mother-led breastfeeding clubs are well attended and have run without interruption since 2008. Our comprehensive approach specifically addresses the historical, societal and social barriers that exist in breastfeeding support and success for African-Americans. Are you a community organizer? Do you represent a community organization? Are you apart of a public health agency? Are you interested in a socially appropriate and targeted approach to decreasing black-white racial breastfeeding disparity? Yes. Well, our model is available for replication.
