Wood County Breastfeeding Coalition

Who We Are

The Wood County Breastfeeding Coalition was established in 1998.  The goal of the Wood County Breastfeeding Coalition is to promote, protect and support breastfeeding through education and outreach to our community. 

The Wood County Breastfeeding Coalition serves as a resource for breastfeeding moms who have lactation concerns.   The coalition educates, advocates and provides support for moms through phone calls, office visits and home visits.


What we are up to...

2018 Lactation Credential Scholarship

The Wood County Breastfeeding Coalition is providing the opportunity to apply for a scholarship for an individual to complete additional lactation training.  This training can include a Certified Lactation Specialist Course, Certified Lactation Counselor Course, or the examination fee for the IBCLC exam.  The scholarship will cover the registration fees for the course, and in the case of the IBCLC exam, will cover the exam fee.

Applications must be received by February 28, 2018. 

The individual selected to receive this year’s scholarship will be notified by March 9, 2018.  In the event that there is a lactation course offered in this area, we ask that the individual attend that course.  

There is a Certified Lactation Specialist Course being provided at the Marshfield Medical Center April 9th - April 13th.  Click here to register!!!
