GBC Mission:

Making breastfeeding the cultural and social norm throughout Georgia.


GBC Values: 

  • Breastfeeding is a valuable Georgia resource.
  • Breastfeeding is not only the normal way to feed infants and young children, but an essential component of public health.
  • Georgia families deserve a coordinated system of care that offers assistance from pre-conception to weaning.
  • The right of mothers to breastfeed should be protected. Mothers have the right to make an informed choice in how they feed their babies.
  • Healthcare providers and facilities are responsible for supporting breastfeeding as the normal method of infant and young child feeding.
  • Providing support for breastfeeding employees is good for business in Georgia.
  • Peer support is a critical component in breastfeeding success.
