A Baby Café breastfeeding drop-in center is a place of excellence that attracts mothers of all ages and from all sectors of the community. It does this by providing breastfeeding help and support, from both skilled health professionals and other mothers, in a friendly, non-clinical, café style environment. The original Baby Café was opened in London, England in 2000. Today, there are 136 Baby Cafés world-wide, with 46 in the United States.
The goals of the organization are:
- To promote the physical and psychological health of mothers and children through education and training regarding breastfeeding.
- To advance the general public knowledge of the health benefits, immediate and long term, of breastfeeding.
- To continue education among volunteers supporting breastfeeding mothers.

In our effort to meet the goals and realize the high standards of The Baby Café, U.K., we have sought partners and sponsors. The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing Baby Café was originally established with generous support from the Paso del Norte Health Foundation, Begin at Birth Initiative, and the Texas Department of State Health Services Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity Prevention Program. We have also received support in the forms of donations, in-kind contributions, and promotion.
