  • “The Community Breastfeeding Initiative grants provided by the Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition have been the catalyst for our area in Southeast Nebraska to build breastfeeding advocacy and support services. The five counties of Southeast Nebraska that make up our Southeast Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition included some knowledgeable and passionate individuals, but the support of the Nebraska Breastfeeding Coalition allowed us to bring those people together, to build a base of professional breastfeeding providers, to educate and advocate, and to form a coalition that continues to meet and look at gaps, barriers, needs, and opportunities in our community to increase breastfeeding rates and support.” – Brooke Chaney, Southeast District Health Department
