Creating Non-Traditional Partners to Support Breastfeeding Families
BriAnna Wanner, Executive Director, North Dakota Breastfeeding Coalition
In 2017 the North Dakota Breastfeeding Coalition (NDBC) looked outside the box, exploring non-traditional breastfeeding partners to help increase community support for breastfeeding families. The key to the project was identifying and solidifying partnerships with stakeholders outside the usual realm. Six communities, five airports, four zoos and one major event center all partnered to create breastfeeding spaces for mothers on the go. This webinar will discuss how the project came to fruition as the NDBC and the ND Department of Health worked closely together to align goals and produce outcomes.
