About

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

Latest News: Letting Go, by Angela Topping is now available to buy. Also, the winning and commended entries of the inaugural MOTHER’S MILK BOOKS WRITING PRIZE have just now been announced. We received many fantastic entries and the judges were really spoilt for choice. Read the results and the judges’ reports here. We are also now open to general submissions – you can read about our guidelines here.  Greetings cards and prints, featuring some of the beautiful art and poetry from Musings on Mothering are now available, and ready to be shipped.

Here are some extracts from the first reviews of Letting Go:

‘…A beautifully judged collection.’
Penelope Shuttle

‘…These are gentle, honest poems that honour the small sorrows and joys of everyday lives. It is impossible to resist the power of such tender declarations of love.’
Martin Figura
