The Breastfeeding Coalition of San Joaquin County provides information about breastfeeding support resources in San Joaquin County including prenatal breastfeeding classes, breastfeeding help lines, lactation consultant services, mother-to-mother support groups and breast pump rentals. The www.BreastfeedSJC.org website includes a Breastfeeding and Working Toolkit with information for working moms and employers. There are also links to information about state and federal laws related to breastfeeding, and helpful links for parents and families, employers, health care professionals, hospital staff and breastfeeding supporters and advocates.
Each year the Breastfeeding Coalition holds a "Positive Images of Breastfeeding Photo Contest" to celebrate breastfeeding families. The Coalition also assists mothers who want to donate their milk to the Mothers' Milk Bank in San Jose. The donor milk is pasteurized and then sent to hospitals for use by premature and sick infants. Coalition members also set up the "Nursing Nook" at health fairs and community events to provide a quiet, cool place for mothers to nurse their babies while participating in community events.
