We need donations to support this website and continue our outreach to mothers and healthcare professionals. Any amount is welcome and deeply appreciated.


This website provides information and support to mothers who are experiencing low milk production. It is also an online resource for healthcare providers who help mothers breastfeed.

Within this site, you'll find information about the causes and treatments of low milk production, as well as stories from women who have experienced low milk production. Our sister site, bfar.org, is a resource for information about breastfeeding after breast surgery.

Information can be very empowering, but it is also very helpful to have the personal support of other women who have low milk production. Please consider joining our forums to meet new friends and learn from their experience and wisdom.

We welcome you to explore our website to discover new ways to address low milk production.
