Asian-Pacific Islander Breastfeeding Resources Library

This Resource Library was assembled by the Asian Pacific Islander Breastfeeding Task Force.  The goal of the Task Force is to become a group of passionate people who are dedicated to promoting and supporting breastfeeding in Durham’s Asian community. We believe that this work should be led by parents with lived experience. We will work to recognize the unique cultural and educational needs of Asian and Asian-American new parents.  The Task Force seeks to decrease inequities and normalize breastfeeding in Durham Asian communities by improving breastfeeding education and support practices, and by removing systemic barriers that prevent breastfeeding from flourishing. Please help us connect.  For more information please email Breastfeed Durham <durham@breastfeedingcommunities.org>.
