Weighing In Pregnancy and Breastfeeding
Weighing In Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

There is a solid connection between mothers' prepregnancy weight, weight gain during pregnancy, breastfeeding and healthy weight children. In response, Weighing In partners with the Mother & Child Health Coalition that leads this working group.

What We're Working On

  • Assess and track resources and policy related to breastfeeding in the Kansas City area.
  • Support collaborative action.
  • Champion hospital policy to enhance maternity practices that support breastfeeding.
  • Champion breastfeeding support for mothers in the workplace.
