MilkWorks was founded in 2001 by a group of seven women, including a pediatrician, four nurses, a childbirth educator, and a doula. The founders were all mothers, who wanted other mothers to have access to breastfeeding support. MilkWorks is a non-profit, which allows them to receive grants and donations to help fund their services. They work closely with local hospitals, physicians, nurse midwives, public health nurses, doulas, WIC programs and La Leche League, to meet the needs of families in the community.
