Appalachian Breastfeeding Network (ABN)

Kentucky has several regional breastfeeding coalitions, support networks and
a state level network.  The Appalachian Breastfeeding Network supports
Kentucky and several other states that contain portions of the Appalachian
region and culture.  Membership is free.  To join, find out more about their
cause or to register for their first annual conference visit
www.appalachianbreastfeedingnetwork.org.
Appalachian Breastfeeding Network's 1st
Annual Conference will not be a typical
professional development or continue
education conference.  For people wanting to
improve their clinical skills, please attend one
of the three conferences planned in Kentucky
.
ABN's conference plans to focus on why the
rates of breastfeeding in Appalachia have
lagged so far behind the national average;
what
cultural, structural and socio-economic barriers

to breastfeeding women in Appalachia are
facing; and how can these challenges be
addressed so women can meet their personal
breastfeeding goals.
