What do we envision for New Mexico? A state where parents and their children experience the health and bonding benefits provided by breastfeeding/chestfeeding.
The New Mexico Breastfeeding Task Force promotes lactation and supports mothers, families, and communities by:
- The mission of NMBTF is to create environments in which lactation is the norm and human milk is available to all infants and children.
- NMBTF’s vision is a world without barriers to lactation.
- The values of NMBTF include evidence-based practice, respect for all, consistent messaging, support, all voices heard, diversity, inclusion, and transparency.
- The purpose of NMBTF is to bridge the gap in breastfeeding/chestfeeding disparities by ensuring all families have the support they need to reach their breastfeeding/chestfeeding goals. A breastfeeding/chestfeeding culture includes all forms of feeding human/mother’s milk, including pumping, donor milk feeding, and milk sharing.
