The Goodhue Wabasha Pierce Counties Breastfeeding Coalition is a coalition of Individuals, Groups and Organizations within the Three Counties on the Eastern border in the State of Minnesota and the Western border of Wisconsin. The Coalition is one of the component coalitions under the Minnesota Breastfeeding Coalition. We from the three counties are working collaboratively to promote and support breastfeeding within our communities, for the health and wellness of children and families.

The breastfeeding coalition was created to:

  • Provide information, education and support to create a welcoming environment for mothers who breastfeed their children.
  • Serve as a resource to improve the health of mothers and babies through breastfeeding.
  • Promote breastfeeding awareness to childcare providers through information and support to facilitate continued breastfeeding and breastmilk feeding.
  • Recognize worksites and community programs that enable breastfeeding continuation when women return to work.Mother nurturing child abstract logo for Goodhue Wabasha Pierce Counties Breastfeeding Coalition

    Hi. I am a doula in training, and would like to come to your group sometime. I saw that you meet at the Mayo hospital in RW on the 2nd Friday of the month. Can you tell me what time that will be in April? I’d like to introduce myself and find out more about the coalition. Please let me know if that might work. Thanks for your help.
