What's happening at Human Milk CIC HQ?
A conversation between Wisdom Blogs Founder Liza K Collins MD and our Founder Claire Tchaikowski.
"Imagine if everywhere we went [if we're struggling with breastfeeding], people said 'Ok, we need to help you, because we know how important this is both for the next generation and also for you.' and within a day you could be seen by people who get it"
Human Milk in Juno Magazine
JUNO Magazine's new Spring 2021 issue features 3 pages on human milk, and Human Milk! Our Founder Claire explores the contents of our milk and has a bit of a rant, calling for mothers and breastfeeding support organisations to get the recognition, social framework and funding they need for breastfeeding to really succeed.
The article includes a photo of gorgeous Dede and her tiny human. Thank you Dede!

our new website
It has arrived. Our new website! Well, you know this, because you're on it... Have a look around, with new features and information, there's a lot to drink in.
It was sort of accidentally built by Claire, after we wondered how hard it would be to re-build our site on a new platform that meant we could update it regularly without a PhD in coding. 2 weeks down a rabbit hole, with graphics by our designer Lisa and some last minute tech help from our über geek Dan, et voilà! It's nice to meet you.
We're excited to announce our partnership with Forever Cacao, a family business producing Award Winning Chocolate from ethically sourced Peruvian Ashaninka Cacao.
10p per pack of Coconut Milk Chocolate will go to Human Milk CIC.
Minimally processed in Wales from all natural ingredients. Vegan friendly and free from gluten, dairy, soya and palm oil. No refined sugar. Handmade and wrapped in plastic free packaging... We love it!!
We have been shortlisted for the 'People. Environment. Achievement.' Awards in the Nature and Vegan categories!
The P.E.A. Awards are the UK's leading sustainability awards, and we are absolutely delighted.
The event takes place on Friday Nov 20th 2020, and you can register free for the virtual event.
Eva Fernandes joins us as Managing Director
Eva joined Human Milk CIC on May 29th 2020. She brings a wealth of experience in building businesses and bringing lasting, equitable change to people's lives.
Eva's care for parents and infants goes back a long way. She was the Founder of Born; Bristol's first ethical parent & baby store in 2000, and The Baby Bank; a thriving charity that provides families in need with the essentials to care for their new babies.
Eva and Claire first met in 2012 and collaborated on a first event, Bristol Food Connections 'Human Milk, our Perfect First Food' in 2015. Eva was there to help at the advert shoot and launch, made our Human Milk event at Colston Hall in June 2019 happen, and it's with huge pride that we welcome her officially to the company.
We teamed up with Ergobaby to talk about oxytocin, and why holding your baby close works so well for breastfeeding.
