Mission

What do we envision for New Mexico? A state where mothers and their children experience the health and bonding benefits provided by breastfeeding.

The New Mexico Breastfeeding Task Force promotes breastfeeding and supports mothers, families, and communities by:

  • The mission of NMBTF is to create supportive environments in which breastfeeding is the cultural norm.
  • NMBTF’s vision is a world without barriers to breastfeeding.
  • The values of NMBTF include evidence-based practice, respect for all, consistent messaging, support, all voices heard, diversity, inclusion, and transparency.
  • The purpose of NMBTF is to bridge the gap in breastfeeding disparities by ensuring all families have the support they need to reach their breastfeeding goals. A breastfeeding culture includes all forms of feeding human/mother’s milk, including pumping, donor milk feeding, and milk sharing.
