The Greater Albuquerque Area Chapter and Sandoval County Chapter are joining!
The mission of the combined Albuquerque Sandoval Chapter is to support, promote, advocate for and normalize breastfeeding and chestfeeding and address barriers families experience through education, outreach, and collaboration within our county.
Our goal is to provide education and support for breast/chestfeeding families in Sandoval County and the greater Albuquerque area.
We are looking for breastfeeding advocates, providers, partner organizations and breastfeeding families who are passionate about supporting families and children. We need your help to normalize breast/chestfeeding by being in the community at events and health fairs to support and empower parents and families through special projects.
Officers: Co-Chairs Meghann Dallin and Alexis Power
Chapter meetings are open to all breastfeeding advocates, providers, partner organizations, Pueblo agencies, and breastfeeding families. We help normalize breastfeeding through special projects that support breastfeeding families in our community.
