Indiana Black Breastfeeding Coalition

August 01, 2013

In celebration of 2013 World Breastfeeding Week, The Indiana Black Breastfeeding Coalition (IBBC) continues it’s mission to raise awareness in the African American Community.

The IBBC offers breastfeeding classes on the third Saturday of each month from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. Classes meet at Indianapolis Healthy Start located at 4087 Millersville Road (near 38th and Keystone) in Indianapolis. Participants will connect with a personal “Bosom Buddy” enjoy a light breakfast and learn about the many resources for breastfeeding moms.

IBBC also offers ongoing breastfeeding support groups for women. These groups offer advice from lactation consultants and other breastfeeding moms as well as free supplies and resources.

If you are an expectant mother, nursing mother or know a woman who could benefit from this wonderful, supportive organization, call 317-283-0120, 317-221-4702, or email today. You may also visit for more information.
