World Millksharing Week 2014: The Ties That Bind Us


WMW 2014 slogan, created by Robin Amber Atherton, celebrates the launching of ‘Liquid Gold: A guide to modern breastmilk sharing’, compiled by World Milksharing week.

Through beautiful and sometimes heart-wrenching personal stories, the milksharing book takes the reader through an emotional journey from the initial distress and fear of the unknown to the celebration of mutual aid and community. We aim to to showcase the deep emotional bonds that arise when people come together to support each other to nourish all babies and children with breastmilk and love. At the same time, the book acts as a catalyst to explore a diversity of social issues such as the role of women in a demanding society, the distrust in our choices, the isolation of mothers, lack of access to evidence based health care and of work environments that accommodate women in their role as mothers.

For the second edition of the book we are seeking more stories (we would like to have one hundred of them!) and tutorials.
