CinnaMoms breastfeeding support groups provide a safe space to discuss life, health, and breastfeeding while breaking down barriers and proving that #BlackWomenDoBreastfeed!
CinnaMoms gather to form a network of support for each other. We encourage pregnant and breastfeeding women to bring the whole village – CinnaDads, CinnaGrands, CinnaBabies and CinnaKids to all of our events.
We host our support groups in five WIC centers that have a high population of African American families. Every day we make a commitment to advocate, encourage, and lend a pair of listening ears to our community. CinnaMoms goes beyond our regular WIC services by providing a safe space to chat about historical feeding practices, cultural perceptions of breastfeeding, familial feeding experiences, and the health benefits of breastfeeding. We discuss interesting and edgy topics that spark conversations about maternal and postpartum health, support systems, and cultural beliefs while enjoying nourishing snacks and many laughs.
