Breastfeeding Support in Kansas

How We Direct KBC Support

Our coalition sections are how we make a difference

The KBC is more than an advocacy group in Kansas. We are advocates, partners, and the go-to resource for lactation support, breastfeeding education, and more. Through our coalition sections, we advance change to create a Kansas where breastfeeding is not only normalized but celebrated.

Each of our sections meets virtually bi-monthly to discuss issues that impact breastfeeding families in Kansas, including legal policy, accessible healthcare, and building communities that support breastfeeding.

We welcome and encourage participation from anyone interested in making breastfeeding and human milk feeding more accessible and equitable in Kansas through advocacy and leadership.

What is a Section?

Our KBC Sections are places where people gather with others with similar interests. Sections are where our members connect and work to build resources and tools to support breastfeeding. Join a Section and deepen your engagement with the KBC!

We currently offer sections related to these topics:

  • Child Care: 3rd Tuesdays during odd months, 12 to 1 pm
  • Local Breastfeeding Coalitions: 2nd Thursdays during odd months, 12 to 1 pm
  • Hospitals: 4th Thursdays during odd months, 12 to 1 pm
  • Public Health 3rd Thrusdays during even months, 11 am to 12 pm
