Milk Wasted is a fun, thematic, low-cost, breastfeeding support circle for all Mamas, Daddys, and soon-to-be parents. Our mission is to build communal support for international breastfeeding in a SUSTAINABLE way!
We invite you to join our VIRTUAL breastfeeding circle that brings a cultural, sexy, and cool theme to the topic. There are no concerns or experiences that are too difficult to address. Pregnant Mamas can attend too. This is a great way to meet other Mamas and families, listen to the shared stories, and learn first hand information that can help you through your breastfeeding journey. This way you are well prepared on what to expect before your baby arrives Earthside!
In our 60 min “sharing circles” we will discuss the many benefits of breastfeeding, while identifying with the old and new cultural values. What this circle offers are fresh and non-judgemental ways to sustain yourself on your breastfeeding journey, while avoiding common obstacles, and gives you the opportunity to build relationships with other breastfeeding families. So bring an open mind and your breastfeeding baby!
In our VIRTUAL sharing circles we will be held via ZOOM for 10 weeks.
Join our SWEET support circle for a suggested love gift of $5 each session (FREE for expectant Mamas). These costs pay for your Milk Wasted PDF journal and supports the cost of our Telewellness platform. No one will be turned away for inability to pay due to economic hardship.
The Milk Wasted sustainable breastfeeding circle is ONLY held for those who register through the ZOOM app.
Register in advance to join the circle at: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZAofuChqj8sHt0iIFYpfuO5VONzwgY1nJlb
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the circles.
Please carefully confirm which dates you are signing up for as it is first come first served and space is limited.
We respectfully request that you make every effort to arrive on time. We, of course, understand that it can be tricky maneuvering with a little one. However, on time arrival ensures your questions are addressed and minimizes disruptions to your fellow breastfeeding community members.
You will not be turned away if you arrive significantly late, but the facilitator may have already covered your situation and may not have time to revisit the topic.
We ask that you leave a message in the comments box to make sure that your questions or concerns are heard.
Those who do not have the ability to pay the suggested cost of $5 per circle will NOT be turned away, yet referred to use our sliding scale system. If you are local and have SoonerCare this program is covered by SoonerPlan as a Natural Family Planning initiative.
Join us every Monday starting March 8th, 2021 – May 10th, 2021 (2pm PT, 3pm MT, 4pm CT, 5pm ET)
