Every day, mothers impart superpowers to their babies through the miracle of breast milk. Breast milk remains one of the safest, most effective, economical ways to protect newborns in early life. Helen Keller Intl guides families every step of the way. We help expectant mothers prepare for their babies’ arrival, support their breastfeeding once they do, and work to stop aggressive and misleading promotion of breast milk substitutes, such as formula. We’re excited to celebrate Helen Keller’s maternal health work, made possible through the support of our generous community of donors, during World Breastfeeding Week.
