Breast milk is a natural, perfectly packaged baby’s first food and contains a unique blend of nutrients to support your baby’s healthy development.  The act of breastfeeding strengthens the mother-baby bonding process, and gives moms and babies many health benefits including obesity prevention, immunity, and psychological closeness.



MHLC was organized in 1992 in response to the need to promote breastfeeding as the Gold Standard for infant nutrition to the medical and general community. MHLC members are professionals who support breastfeeding at hospitals, health centers, community based organizations, and within the community in private practice.  MHLC:
