Success Is Within Reach

Welcome to the eighth annual Salt Lake City Breastfeeding Cafe! With the World Breastfeeding Week theme in mind, “Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers,” our theme this year is “Success is within Reach.”

The 2013 Breastfeeding Cafe takes place in the atrium of the Main Public Library (210 East 400 South) in the SHARE space. An online blog carnival kicks off our event, July 22 – August 4, followed by our living Cafe in the library which will take place August 5-19. Our living Cafe coincides with World Breastfeeding Week in the US. The Cafe is open daily at 10am and Sundays 1-5. This is a place for nursing mothers and children to take a break from summer’s heat and for our community to celebrate the everyday wonders of breastfeeding. Workshops are offered by dietitians, medical professionals, IBCLCs and other professionals who Utah’s breastfeeding families. All events are designed to enhance the parent/child relationship . Check out our events calendar for dates and detail.

Please join us  …..  because breastfeeding touches us all.

  1. I’ll be heading through the SLC area next month and think a visit may be in order! What a wonderful idea.

      Thanks! The Cafe blooms one month a year, in August, in celebration of World Breastfeeding Week. We hope to welcome visitors to the area as well as local moms, dads, and others who celebrate the nursing relationship.

      Look for our online blog carnival in July as we anticipate opening day!

    I am preparing to move from NE to UT summer 2014. I am a soon to be CLC, Certified Lactation Counselor & a childbirth educator soon to sit for the Lamaze test & become a LCCE. I LOVE what you are doing with the cafe! What a great thing for Breastfeeding mom’s to have a place :) I was wondering if you have any thoughts on places who might be interested in hiring a CLC. I am also wondering thoughts on the most forward thinking hospital in SLC. I work for a women’s hospital in NE now that is very cutting edge. We got the honor of creating NE’s 1st hospital based childbirth class for couples wanting to try unmedicated labor & delivery. Anyway, I’m just looking to find out what the birth climate is like out there & to see what resources are available to mom’s for support after delivery. Thanks in advance for any insight.

    I would love to see this event happen more often than once a year, a great way to NORMALIZE breastfeeding is to show it more often. Expose the public to it more often, perhaps quarterly, bi-monthly, or even monthly! Please let me know if I can help in any way!
