Want to support breastfeeding in Utah? Have a story to tell? Interested in meeting other fun & feisty nursing mamas working to normalize breastfeeding?

To get the latest scoop, join the Facebook group, Utah Protects Breastfeeding.
Here’s the group description:
We are individuals, mothers, and families working with the support of the Utah Breastfeeding Coalition to protect breastfeeding in Utah through new legislation.

Our goal is to create simple, clear language to protect breastfeeding in Utah and to increase public awareness that breastfeeding is normal.
