Did you know.....
While 93% of moms start breastfeeding exclusively at birth in San Diego, only 56% continue doing so at 3 months, largely due to a lack of access to ongoing lactation support.
Lack of financial resources is reported as one of the main barriers for women to receive qualified breastfeeding support to help feed their babies.
You can help local low-income women gain access to critical breastfeeding support on this #GivingTuesday.
Wondering how your donation can help local breastfeeding moms?
We are asking you to help us #SupportSDMoms by donating your weekly coffee money!
It’s that simple!
If everyone reading this blog article donated $10-$20 today to the San Diego Breastfeeding Center Foundation.... the amount they would spend at a coffee shop this week... we would be able to raise over $40,000 on #GivingTuesday.
Can you help us reach this goal?
All you have to do is click on this Paypal link to donate this week’s coffee allowance and help bring affordable breastfeeding support to hundreds of local low-income moms.
I am so very grateful for being able to receive help from a highly trained lactation consultant at an affordable price. My son was born with a lip and tongue tie which required many appointments with doctors and specialists. The medical bills added up quickly and it was very overwhelming for our family. Dealing with my son's lip and tongue ties caused me a lot of anxiety and knowing that I could afford to get help with our nursing relationship helped ease my worries. Being able to successfully breastfeed my child is a very important priority and goal for us. The lactation consultant was very thorough and gave us the encouragement, confidence and knowledge to overcome obstacles and continue nursing. I cannot thank SDBFC enough for their kindness and support on our breastfeeding journey.
The goal of the San Diego Breastfeeding Center Foundation is to reduce socioeconomic disparities in breastfeeding support by increasing access to qualified lactation consultants for low-income families. We provide lactation consultations for qualifying families at affordable rates!
