Mothers are more likely to breastfeed if their friends, families, health care providers, colleagues, and communities support them. Advancing Breastfeeding: Forging Partnerships for a Better Tomorrow describes how to create this supportive culture by developing relationships with groups that can help mothers reach their breastfeeding goals. Topics include forming partnerships with:
• Health care providers,
• Community, state, and national organizations, and
• Diverse communities to reduce disparities in breastfeeding and increase equity in outcomes.
