Wood County Breastfeeding Coalition

Who We Are

The Wood County Breastfeeding Coalition was established in 1998.  The goal of the Wood County Breastfeeding Coalition is to promote, protect and support breastfeeding through education and outreach to our community. 

The Wood County Breastfeeding Coalition serves as a resource for breastfeeding moms who have lactation concerns.   The coalition educates, advocates and provides support for moms through phone calls, office visits and home visits.
