The milc room,
a place where you can relax, away from home, with your breast fed baby.
Welcome to the milc room
Our mission is to provide a community based lactation care center for all pregnant and breast feeding mothers where they can receive peer breast feeding support, breast feeding information, or make an appointment for further professional lactation care.
It is our vision that every woman wants to breastfeed her baby, that she knows that she can breastfeed her baby, and most of all, that she knows that she can find and access available resources to get help with breast feeding when she needs it. The milc room envisions being a centrally located community breast feeding resource for all pregnant and breast feeding women regardless of her economic status, or where she has given birth.
1. Group Support: These are informal 2 hour gatherings Mondays 9 am-11 noon in Holden, Ma., and Thursdays 10 am-12 noon in Shrewsbury, Ma. An experienced breastfeeding mom is always in attendance. Significant problems are a phone call away. See side bar for locations and directions. Our group fee is a $5.00 suggested donation. This covers refreshments and opportunity for supporting our dedicated facilitator for the day.
Are you an experienced breastfeeding mom, CLC, or IBCLC? Do you want to start a weekly group in your community? For a relatively small fee for how-to, start-up and pr materials you could bring breastfeeding moms together and provide very much needed support. Email; email@example.com for more information and details.
2. Private One-to-one care: Call or email for appointment Monday through Friday. 508-847-8615 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Fees: $90.00 initial visit – up to 2 hours. Follow-up visits $50.00. A formal receipt is given upon request, and visits are often reimbursed by your insurance company.
3. Like our FACEBOOK page. We have an active and helpful group of LOCAL (to Central Massachusetts) moms that want to help each other with breastfeeding, pumping, weaning and feeding their babies into childhood.
