|breast_milk is a community dedicated to being a resource full of information about and support for people who are planning on making decisions about lactation or who are simply interested in learning more about it.|
While non-lactating men are welcome to join the community for information-- especially for their lactating partners-- breast_milk's purpose is to revolve around the issues important to breastfeeding people.
Some examples of topics that this community revolves around are:
This community is an alternative to some of the other LiveJournal communities addressing breast milk which rigidly revolve around a political agenda and cut off the availability of their advice to those who do not toe that line; the breast_milk community is based on an understanding that, while it may be the only option some see for themselves and their children, breastfeeding can be a lot of work and should not be required of everyone, and breast_milk members are expected to respect other people's decisions about what to and not to do with their bodies. After all, everyone deserves a safe place to ask questions about their bodies without judgment!
