Alicia Silverstone helps moms who can’t nurse their babies

91455503-alicia-silverstone Actress Alicia Silverstone has started a breast milk-sharing service for moms who can’t breastfeed their babies. The service is called Kind Mama Milk Share and its purpose is to connect mothers so those who can’t nurse their newborns can find donors.

Alicia wrote on her website: “A couple weeks ago, another mama I know gave birth to a son. She e-mailed to let me know how things were going, and she was beside herself. She’d tried to do everything so that this baby would have the healthiest, happiest start in life – she nourished herself during pregnancy with clean, kind foods; had a beautiful home birth; and planned to breastfeed from now until her son could say, ‘No thanks.’ But because of a breast reduction surgery, she found she wouldn’t be able to make enough milk for him. A lot of women unfortunately have a similar struggle…

If you are in need of milk – post it! Think of all the babies we can help raise together!”
