The mission of the Sandoval County Breastfeeding Chapter is to support,
promote, advocate for and normalize breastfeeding and address barriers
families experience through education, outreach, and collaboration within our county.
Our goal is to provide education and support for breastfeeding families in Sandoval County.
The Sandoval 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. Meetings are monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.
We would love to hear from you since we haven’t been able to meet for a while. Our next Sandoval Chapter Meeting is Tuesday, May 12, 2020, from 12:30-1:30 PM Mountain Time. https://zoom.us/j/130693706
