The MSBC was formed in 1990, originally known as the Breastfeeding Task Force, an all-volunteer group with leadership support from the Maine WIC Program. Initially, we were a networking hub for regional coalitions. In 2018, we incorporated as a 501(c)3 to serve our diverse communities and professionals in more and better ways.


The MSBC is a welcoming and broad network of people supporting families who value human milk and lactation. Together we work to enhance the culture of breastfeeding and chestfeeding around the state through advocacy, education, and connection.
