BREASTFEEDING RESOURCE CENTER

 

“The Breastfeeding Resource Center (BRC) was established in 2003 by two International Board Certified Lactation Consultants. They envisioned a place where mothers could go if they were having difficulty with breastfeeding, planning to return to work while continuing their breastfeeding relationship, needing assistance in choosing the right products, or just needing some support and reassurance. They also imagined it being a valuable resource for healthcare professionals serving breastfeeding families. It was strongly felt that this center should be accessible to all families, regardless of economic means.”
