Pathway to Wellness, LLC
(Helping Moms to have Healthy Babies)
To see every mother have a healthy pregnancy, birthing experience and rear a healthy child.
We are a group of public health professionals dedicated to the protection, promotion, and support of breastfeeding within in the state of Mississippi. Our mission is to improve the health of mothers and their children by increasing the rates of exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life.
We intend to accomplish this mission by educating women and providing them with the supplies, equipment and counseling they need to successfully breastfeed. We will educate employers and assist them in creating a positive, supportive work environment for their breastfeeding employees. We will work with insurers by providing comprehensive breastfeeding services to their breastfeeding members. We will advocate for breastfeeding friendly legislation with the Mississippi State Legislature and municipalities across the State. We will promote breastfeeding among birthing centers and ensure that child care facilities are in compliance with the State Breastfeeding law. We will partner with local and national organizations to increase breastfeeding rates. We won't rest until breastfeeding becomes commonplace among all women despite their race and social standing.
