Membership Options

Mothers are more successful with breastfeeding when they have a supportive community where they live and work. You have an opportunity to help build communities that support breastfeeding families – whether it’s through annual giving, partnership or sponsorship. LBC’s passionate supporters are a crucial part in creating a change in Louisiana’s breastfeeding environment and helping mothers reach their breastfeeding goals. Breastfeeding and its support are crucial to the physical, social, ecological and economic health of our state.
