Mission: We believe that the birth of a child is a pivotal event for women and for families. If we, as a society, can help in the transition from woman and man, to: parent, mother and father, we can help prevent some of the social, medical and emotional problems of the future. It all starts with the pregnancy, prenatal care and birth. What is needed is: wanted and/or accepted pregnancies prenatal care with respect (social,ethnic,emotional) faith and trust that, for most women, pregnancy and birth are normal gentle birth in a supportive environment focused on the woman and baby midwifery for the masses, with proper back-up and support a doula for every woman support for breast-feeding human milk for human babies supportive home care for new mothers and fathers mentors for positive early parenting (mothers teach mothering)

I love being a volunteer lactation consultant with Better Beginnings. When a mom comes into one of the Cafes, I can take the time to listen to her story and find ways to help her. The other moms are like her breastfeeding, older and experienced sisters who hold her up and support her in difficult times. It is a village of breastfeeding and parenting support!
