Mother’s Milk Books is a small, family-run press that publishes high-quality, beautiful books for adults and children that normalise breastfeeding and celebrate femininity and empathy. There are very few books on the market that illustrate the natural beauty of the breastfeeding mother-baby dyad, and we at Mother’s Milk Books would like to change that!
Latest News: The deadline for our 2014 Writing Prize has now passed and we are no longer accepting entries. We will be announcing the winners towards the end of February on our blog, so please do keep an eye out for those results.
Our new collection of poetry and prose, The Mother’s Milk Books Writing Prize Anthology 2013: PARENTING has now been published and is available to buy from our store. We are also now open to general submissions (and soon to be accepting more fairy tales) – you can read our guidelines here. Greetings cards and prints, featuring some of the beautiful art and poetry from our first title Musings on Mothering are now available, and ready to be shipped. To buy our new products from our online shop, using Paypal, debit/credit card, bank transfer or cheque, please visit the shop pages of this website.
If you are interested in buying multiple copies of any of our titles, we can organize a bulk discount for you. If you’d like to order via email and pay by cheque, through the post, we can organize that too! Simply get in touch via the contact page to find out more.
