Tarrant County Breastfeeding Coalition (TCoBCo), est. April, 2011, is a grassroots movement to increase breastfeeding practices in Tarrant County.
Previously, North Texas Breastfeeding Coalition served the DFW area. After several years' absence in Tarrant County, interest has resurged with the birth of TCoBCo.
Our mission is to improve the health of Tarrant County by working collaboratively to:
- promote, and,
- support breastfeeding.
TCoBCo has a wide variety of members including:
- lactation consultants
- peer counselors
- breastfeeding supporters
- nursing mothers
- supportive fathers
TCoBCo's specific workgroups include:
- community outreach
- special projects
- website and social media
We also collaborate with community organizations, such as Catholic Charities and the Mothers' Milk Bank of North Texas. Anyone with a desire to educate and promote breastfeeding in the community is welcome to be a part of TCoBCo. Ready to become a member?
