The Breastfeeding Initiative of Ulster County (BIUC) is a group of organizations and individuals committed to increasing breastfeeding rates in Ulster County through promotion, protection, and support.
We began meeting in February 2010 as a small group of concerned community members.
We have had monthly meetings since October 2010. In these meetings we have discussed the needs and priority demographic groups of our county.
We are currently working on the following projects:
-Promoting Community Support
-Encouraging Businesses to become Breastfeeding Friendly
-Prenatal Breastfeeding Education
