Dr. MILK Physician Mother Peer Support Network
Dr. MILK ® (Mothers Interested in Lactation Knowledge) is an online and in-person support network to help physician mothers achieve their personal breastfeeding goals. Physician mothers have been defined as a high-risk breastfeeding group because of their unique barriers to achieving breastfeeding goals in addition to the common barriers shared with all work-outside-the-home mothers. When a physician mother reaches her breastfeeding goals, she is more likely to hold positive knowledge and attitudes towards breastfeeding in her medical practice. Until there is universal physician education in breastfeeding competencies, achieving personal breastfeeding success in physician mothers remains a critical strategy to impact thousands of mother-baby dyads that she will encounter over the course of her career.
