a community project that was set up with two aspects:

We were started by
J'Nel Metherell, a local International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), to build a network of peer supporters to help parents in our local area who wish to breastfeed. The group is maintained collaboratively by our peer supporters and is run and directed by those within the group who have the ideas and passion to make Milk Mentors what it is, while continuing to uphold the mission and ethos of this amazing community project.
