Mission Statement

Support, Promote, Protect. Support other mothers in realizing their breastfeeding goals through information and non-judgmental encouragement. Promote the value of breastfeeding community wide through education and strategic partnership. Protect a mother's commitment to breastfeed for as long as she and her child mutually desire.

Description

We are a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping mothers have a good breastfeeding relationship with their babies. We provide free breastfeeding information, low cost pump sales and rentals, and in-home lactation consultation for those with limited access to care. Our volunteers are trained to provide mama-to-mama peer counseling. Through our free help-lines, classes, website, pumps and training, we help approximately 12,500 women per year! With our help, breastfeeding rates in Oregon have ranked at the top of the nation from 2001 - 2004, the most recent years data is available. In our efforts to provide this support to families, we rely solely on grants and donations from the community.
