Welcome to the St. Louis Breastfeeding Coalition! STLBFC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization coalescing and serving breastfeeding families, health care providers, organizations, employers, and advocates to promote, protect, and support breastfeeding in the St. Louis area. Founded in 1989, we have meetings 4 times per year and have committees that work to address various breastfeeding issues in our area. Our mission is to help people learn about the benefits and management of breastfeeding, reduce the barriers to breastfeeding, and to give support to breastfeeding as the cultural norm.




STLBFC partners with the Missouri Breastfeeding Coalition and the United States Breastfeeding Committee in our common missions and work.
