What is Baby Café USA?

 

We are a Non-profit 501(c)3 organization supporting the development of licensed U.S. Baby Cafés.

 

Baby Cafés are FREE resources for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, offering:

  • Support from specifically-trained staff
  • Opportunities to share experiences and make friends
  • Refreshments, comfortable seating, and open-forum discussions

No appointment is needed- Baby Café sites are generally open at least once a week.

Some Cafes offer play areas for accompanying toddlers. 

Locations vary from church halls, community rooms and soup kitchens to WIC clinics and hospitals. Some Cafés welcome male partners, and all Cafés welcome female supporters.

Benefits of Visiting a Baby Cafe

Currently, approximately 80% of all US women start breastfeeding, but of those moms, approximately 60% do not reach their own goals.

In efforts to improve these rates, Baby Cafés offer support on all aspects of breastfeeding and its impact on daily life – from prenatal to weaning, as well as assistance with pumping and maintaining supply if moms return to work outside the home.

Baby Café sites are run by a range of trained staff including health professionals such as board certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs), midwives and nurses, and other qualified and accredited breastfeeding counselors. All will have specific training and experience in helping breastfeeding families to provide a consistent, high standard of care
