Saving Tomorrow Today: An African American Breastfeeding Blueprint

Reaching Our Sisters Everywhere (ROSE)

Reaching Our Sisters Everywhere released “Saving Tomorrow Today: An African American Breastfeeding Blueprint,” with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The report explains the disparities in breastfeeding; while the percentage of black women breastfeeding has increased from 2009–2015, overall rates for African American women lag that of white, Asian, and Hispanic women. The report offers several recommendations to increase breastfeeding rates in this population.
