Breastfeeding Education & Support

Recognizing Black Breastfeeding Week

Join us for our virtual breastfeeding skills session for professionals!

Sistahs Who Breastfeed Jersey City and Paterson is a parenting group that focuses on healthy practices for feeding babies. In collaboration with the Perinatal Health Equity Foundation, the group is made up of pregnant and postpartum women who identify as Black and live in Jersey City or Paterson.

Women in the group are supported through home visits, prenatal education, postpartum support, linkage to community support programs, and a safe place to discuss topics related to lactation as a Black woman. The group meets in person and online.
