About Us

Indiana Breastfeeding Coalition's mission is to improve the health of all residents of Indiana by working collaboratively to promote, support, and protect breastfeeding and human milk as the optimal first food for infants in Indiana.  Our vision is that breastfeeding will be the cultural and social norm throughout Indiana and the IBC guides the actions we take to promote human milk feeding.  We act as the hub of resources for breastfeeding throughout Indiana and the liaison to the United States Breastfeeding Committee.
