As a leader in lactation education and promotion, BOGW’s mission is to advance breastfeeding and successful parenting throughout the DC metro area by providing free and low cost professional instruction to families in a supportive community space. 

We strive to fulfill our mission through our outreach programs. In 2012 we saw over 5,000 families and taught 396 free and low cost classes. We are able to continue to reach more and more families because of your generous support.
