The SFDPH Lactation Support Collaborative is proud to celebrate breastfeeding in San Francisco with a city-wide photo contest, photo exhibit at City Hall, and a breastfeeding campaign on San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency(SFMTA) buses in the month of August – be on the lookout!
Many of the moms featured on the SFMTA buses are currently enrolled in various community programs and have faced numerous challenges to breastfeeding including problems with latch, issues with supply, discomfort, challenges finding accessible and affordable breastfeeding care and lack of community support including at home, workplace and childcare just to name a few. Thank you all for sharing your struggles and your successes!
San Francisco supports breastfeeding! These photos are our effort to create awareness regarding our collective responsibility of supporting breastfeeding mothers in our communities.
