About Us

Breastfeeding: the biological norm

We are a non-profit group with the primary goal of protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding within Kamloops and the surrounding communities. 

Our Mission

 We strive to provide current, accurate breastfeeding information your family can depend on. We aim to:

  • Serve families as a not-for-profit breastfeeding information website
  • Upload the latest breastfeeding information on our facebook page
  • Promote breastfeeding as the natural way to feed infants and young children
  • Collaborate with other health systems and act as an advocate for change in the community​

Our Vision

Our vision is to have breastfeeding mothers and families able to get accurate information and timely support in the hospital, at home, in public places, and at work in order to meet their breastfeeding goals.
