The Milk Mob

GOLD Learning and The Milk Mob have come together in an exciting new partnership. The Milk Mob is a nonprofit organization promoting and supporting breastfeeding for families in the outpatient sector. Through GOLD, online education reaches an extended audience and makes continuing education more straightforward than ever.

In recognition that families often face a lack of consistent support once they’ve left the hospital, The Milk Mob works towards creating Breastfeeding Friendly Medical Systems and Communities. Their work aims to educate medical staff and community breastfeeding supporters while supporting collaboration among support systems. Their projects put educational resources into the hands of breastfeeding educators and community supporters, allowing parents to connect with reliable evidence-based information.
