All About ZipMilk
The Massachusetts Breastfeeding Coalition is proud to offer ZipMilk as a tool to families with the breastfeeding help they need!
For over 12 years, ZipMilk.org has been providing Massachusetts with reputable breastfeeding resources sorted by zip code. In addition to Massachusetts, there are several other states who use ZipMilk as a way for families to find breastfeeding help in their respective states. States and services are being added on an ongoing basis!
ZipMilk is a site that provides listings for breastfeeding resources sorted by ZIP Code. It is designed for use by consumers interested in help or support for breastfeeding, as well as by providers who want to give their clients access to such resources. These resources are not a substitute for medical advice; however, ZipMilk’s online directory points users towards board-certified lactation consultants, breastfeeding counselors and educators, breastfeeding support groups, free community-based lactation resources including WIC programs and more.
The data on ZipMilk is collected and maintained by state breastfeeding coalitions and other organizations, which are responsible for the state-specific listings on the web site. Reasonable verification of data is asked of each organization at least once a year. Resources may be collected from local organizations, which verify credentials of some individuals listed. Not all resources may exist in all states, or may not be listed at the discretion of each organization. Search terms are designed to be consistent from state to state, and to encompass as many multi-state as well as local resources as possible.
If you are searching for information from a state not currently represented on ZipMilk, please contact your local state breastfeeding coalition and encourage them to join ZipMilk.
