Who we are:
Buffalo's Breastfeeding Sisters, is our Breastfeeding support program for African American women in the city of Buffalo. In collaboration with Reach Buffalo, Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health Program, funded through the CDC's Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity’s (DNPAO) initiative to help reduce health disparities among racial and ethnic populations with the highest risk. Our goal is to help promote and increase the number of African American women breastfeeding.
The program is here to aid and promote the normalcy of breastfeeding in the African American community.
Here we provide African American women with a safe space to feel comfortable and welcome to discuss their concerns and questions. We debunk debunked and provide evidenced based information. Our goal is to educate families to have a better understanding of breastfeeding, the importance, and its benefits.
