The Coalition of Oklahoma Breastfeeding Advocates (COBA) welcomes you to share our mission to promote, protect and support breastfeeding for Oklahoma’s citizens. Your involvement is crucial to help breastfeeding become the norm in Oklahoma.
We invite you to work with us to develop breastfeeding-friendly communities in Oklahoma. Quarterly meetings are held from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. at the OSDH WIC Service Office at Shepherd Mall in Oklahoma City. If you are not able to attend the meetings in person you can also participate by video or telephone conference. Meeting notices and minutes are emailed to members to keep up with our activities, if you are not able to attend the meetings.
