“I am a first generation, lower income, Latinx full-time college student.
I battled a 7 month long struggle with breastfeeding. I reached my breaking point and found the SDBFC Foundation, hesitant to make an appointment due to the cost, until I saw the option for Medi-Cal. If I had to pay for the full price for an initial appointment, I doubt I would have made the appointment. This is not because I would not want to, but because I could not afford it.
Through the SDBFC Foundation, my daughter and I were able to access the necessary services in order for her to receive the proper care and attention needed for her to survive and thrive.
Nonprofits like these help break down systematic barriers that prevent Latinx and other BIPOC communities from successfully breastfeeding. They also allow lower-income parents to be able to provide an equitable childhood to their children beginning at infancy. I am forever grateful!”
