Expert Nursing Resources to Support Breastfeeding Families at Home and Work

"We empower breastfeeding mothers and new parents at work and at home. Since Healthy Horizons was founded 30 years ago, we have supported 2 million parents with expertise and love."

Breastfeeding and chestfeeding (chestfeeding is a gender-neutral term for breastfeeding which is more inclusive of the representation of transgender men, non-binary people, and genderfluid people.) can help strengthen the bonding connection between babies and their caregivers.

Breast milk is ideal for babies as it is easy to digest contains nutrients babies need for healthy growth and development. Breast milk also contains antibodies to help protect babies from infections.

Connecting families with resources and communities to enjoy the benefits of nursing is an important part of the Healthy Horizons mission. If you are considering breastfeeding, consult with your doctor or connect with Healthy Horizons  to get started and receive answers to any questions you may have.

The theme for National Breastfeeding Month in 2023 is "This is Our Why." This theme provides reflection on the many reasons why breastfeeding is important. Conversations bringing to the forefront babies and families needing breastfeeding and chestfeeding support must take place. Join together to talk with friends and family about breastfeeding  and encourage support for breastfeeding mothers.
