Milky Mommas Inc has established the following eight values as the heart of our organization’s purpose.
Equity – Increasing representation of minorities in trained lactation support and working to overcome and dismantle barriers in underserved populations.
Accessibility – Using technology to innovate lactation support and pioneer new communities and resources in the digital world, and resolving first food deserts by sponsoring new lactation professionals in communities of greatest need.
Inclusivity – Aligning as allies of the LGBTQIA community and honoring the unique path of each family to breast milk feeding.
Compassion – Honoring the right of each family unit to pursue and preserve their best health through breast milk feeding, and meeting each family where they are to provide nonjudgmental counseling and support.
Kindness – Fostering goodwill within the culture of our community and promoting the protection of human dignity in lactation support.
Respect – Working in collaboration with health, medical, legal, government, and fellow lactation professionals to promote breast milk feeding, and treating all interactions within our digital community with the same tact as we would an in-person interaction.
Accountability – Staying abreast of current research which involves or impacts the field of lactation support, and reflect the best available evidence in counseling practices, advocacy, and education.
Excellence – Training volunteers to exhibit professionalism in all affairs of the organization, exemplify the highest level of integrity, and adhere to an established Code of Ethics.
