 Our first in-person Mothering Community meet-ups
are coming to Bristol, UK.

We are very excited to announce the coming of our first in-person community meet-ups, earmarked for July 2024. Running alongside our online calls, these spaces will be the place to come to meet and journey alongside other mothers, including us.

The meet-ups will be open to all mothers. You do not have to breastfeeding anymore to join us.

The first space is the Square Club in Bristol, our Human Milk home town, with its squishy sofas, cosy spots, Art exhibitions and dreamy garden.

We'll be building the community with you, exploring what you'd like the space to be about. We know for sure that there will be tea, coffee, juice, pastries, and a warm welcome.

We'll also be running focus groups where you can come and try on our clothes and tell us what you think, and sessions with Jennifer Grace, who will be doing mini mother/baby/family photoshoots for anyone who wants one, for a small fee that will be donated towards raising the money we need to shoot the new breastfeeding advert 2.0!

In time, we can imagine these meet-ups popping up all over the place, connecting us one cup of tea and one biscuit at a time. 

 

Ok maybe 3 biscuits.

Community Calls

We're introducing a new service; online community calls supporting both new and experienced mothers around our mental health, navigating the changes we go through in motherhood, together.

Our Sun Bloom video podcasts are live! 

The Sun Bloom Conversations is a series of conversations from around the world inspired by the censorship on social media of the image  by Chloe Trayhurn of a breastfeeding mother as "sexually provocative adult content".

The podcasts will open up space to talk it out, explore the reasons for the censorship - which go well beyond social media - how we feel about it, and the real world results of it. We'll rage and laugh and grieve and explore through various lenses, always bringing the focus back onto how incredible women's bodies really are and what we can do to bring ownership of our bodies back to ourselves.

Chloe Trayhurn's painting Sun Bloom, which we have printed onto stunning scarves in collaboration with Chloe has been censored by Facebook as "sexually suggestive adult content", and we've had rather enough. 

We will be exploring this topic in a series of podcasts.

Let's bring the focus away from shaming women and their bodies and back onto just how remarkable women and their bodies actually are.

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!

You can subscribe to Juno here.

It's a beautiful publication about sustainability, community and parenting.

Thank you Juno!

Introducing

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.

New Partner

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 a 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.
