North Carolina Breastfeeding Coalition recently received grant funding in the amount of $56,520 to implement Interventions Supportive of Breastfeeding in the primary care setting. NCBC aims to increase breastfeeding rates among populations at highest risk for health inequities. NCBC’s project will coach primary care providers through a process to 1) increase accessibility of breastfeeding support by medical providers and peer counselors, 2) review breastfeeding protocols, practices and interventions and 3) attain the Mother-Baby Friendly clinic award for outpatient clinics. We will begin our work in two primary care clinics serving low-income families and families of color in New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick Counties. Grant funding for this project runs April-September of 2019. We are recruiting for candidates in several open positions available for this round of funding, and will be applying for additional funding to continue the project in another location for the next round of grant applications.
