Health Babies - Breastfeeding

About US


The Monroe County Breastfeeding Collaborative (BFC) began in the summer of 2006 and is continually active supporting and promoting breastfeeding throughout our community. Representatives from the Family Medical Center, the Monroe County Health Department, Mercy Memorial Hospital, WIC, and Michigan State University Extension actively participate in our bi-monthly meetings.  Health care professionals and anyone who is a breastfeeding activate is encouraged to attend.  

Our mission is to educate the community about the benefits of breastfeeding, to promote breastfeeding-friendly environments, and to support breastfeeding mothers.
