The ambition of Mother’s Milk Books is to publish high-quality, beautiful books for adults and children that normalize breastfeeding. 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!
