As part of Mama Love’s* continuing relationship with the Ryan Women and Children’s Center**, Mama Love was honored to be asked to “adopt” and re-design their breastfeeding room. The room is a small and simple space, but for the new mothers coming for support and to learn about nursing their infants, it’s a very meaningful place. When we began the project the walls were a mish-mash of colors and we were overtaken by the contrasting colors, harsh lights and uncomfortable space with a real lack of privacy. We’ve made some progress already – having the room repainted a nice neutral color and installing a divider curtain to provide privacy for the nursing moms. The next phase of the project involves some funds and we’re asking you to help out. Can you sponsor one of the following needed items to make the space a haven for these mothers?
