Parent Advocacy Group
The North Carolina Breastfeeding Coalition (NCBC) is committed to creating an environment of genuine breastfeeding support for all families. Parents are at the center of this work. If you are passionate about breastfeeding and interested in volunteering in your community, we welcome you to join our organization as a Parent Advocate! We live in an incredibly diverse state and each community is unique. We know that a person who lives, works, volunteers, or supports parents in their community would have a better understanding of the needs in that area. Our parent advocate members identify education and resource needs of parents in their community, pinpoint areas that are working well for breastfeeding families when interacting with systems of care in their communities, and define ways to improve lactation care and support for families who are providing human milk to their babies.
