About

The Port City Breastfeeding Project is a local grassroots organization consisting of parents and perinatal professionals who are dedicated to supporting and normalizing breastfeeding throughout Wilmington and the surrounding areas. We believe public health begins with breastfeeding and strive to help new parents achieve their desired goal through public awareness, education, and establishing community support. PCBP is known for projects and events such as Ban the Bags Project, Breastfeeding Friendly Business Awards, The Big Latch On, educational movie screenings, breastfeeding support groups, and much more! This group signifies the amount of support it takes for families to raise their little ones.Will you join us??

“Mothers don’t fail to breastfeed. Communities fail to support women. It takes community to support a nursing mother.”-Susan Johnson
