Breastfeed your baby for good health

The South Carolina Breastfeeding Coalition promotes, protects and supports the art and science of human milk feeding as the superior form of nutrition and nurture for infants and young children.



SCHA recently installed a mother's lounge that provides a clean, private, comfortable space for nursing employees and conference center visitors to express milk for their babies during the workday. SCHA received funding from the Healthy South Carolina Initiative (HSCI) to furnish the room, implement a lactation support policy and educate staff on the importance of breastfeeding and available resources.

Mother-friendly Employers

The Coalition is committed to helping employers become Mother-Friendly workplaces.
