ONLINE: We have a growing online presence. Our website contains posts and links on breastfeeding management info, spiritual posts and links, mothers' stories, podcasts, a small e-book lending library, and a whole lot more. We have a yahoo group that has 144 members and is a little quiet (but also a nice alternative to Facebook if you are not a Facebook fan), a Facebook group with 875 members, and a Facebook page.
IN-PERSON: Currently there are 15 registered in person CNML groups around the country. We are always happy to add more groups to the list as we want our ministry to touch Catholic mothers in every parish! If you feel called to lead a CNML group in your parish or town, send me an email at catholicbreastfeeding(at)yahoo(dot)com, and I can help you get started. CNML has a leader's handbook that makes it super easy!
GOODIES: CNML provides lots of goodies to inform and encourage nursing moms. If any of the following items will help support you in your faith and as a nursing mother, please drop me an email at catholicbreastfeeding(at)yahoo(dot)com and I will gladly send it out to you.
