AL Lactation Support Groups


Boosting breastfeeding support is important for black women and their children because it can improve their own health outcomes and mortality, which lag behind other groups in the U.S. Black women are three to four times more likely to die as a result of pregnancy, compared to white women. Their babies suffer an infant mortality rate that more than doubles that of white children, often due to low birthweight, premature birth or complications after birth. Promoting better maternal care, including educating all mothers about the value and practice of breastfeeding, could help reverse some of these trends
