Group Description

"Moms For Milk" was founded to support those who are involved in advocating for the rights of women and infants to fully participate in their biological right and anthropological heritage of natural birth, exclusive and extended breastfeeding, shared sleep, and close physical contact. Through this twice yearly newsletter, and the database of members established through its subscription, "Moms For Milk" will initiate and coordinate a grass-roots movement of women demanding access to full information on birth and infant feeding choices for themselves and all women, and to require that services be made available to support these choices.

Empowerment through Breastfeeding

Our objectives:
- to support, motivate, educate and coordinate new and experienced breastfeeding advocates.
- to provide a low-cost source of information.
- to promote networking and resource sharing amongst advocates.
- to create a database of advocates and their unique skills and experiences that can be accessed by other members.
- to initiate a coordinated effort by member advocates to begin change (petitions, letter-writing campaigns, demonstrations, surveys, etc.)

Why "Moms For Milk?"
First, go to the moms for the milk. Let's feed our own babies, and if supplemental milk is needed, use milk provided by other mothers through human milk banks.
Second, this is primarily a group of moms promoting mother's milk, differing from other groups mainly made up of health professionals
