Online Breastfeeding Support - MAVINS

What is MAVINS?

The Maternal and Virtual Infant Nutrition Support clinic (MAVINS) is a thoughtful and caring community for mothers, families and health care practitioners. Our goal is to help make evidence based information available to the community to support and promote the importance of breastmilk as the number one source of infant nutrition.

MAVINS is a virtual environment supported by International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC), Nurses, Doctors and other health care professionals. You can find articles, featured tips, local resources for support and a community discussion board to engage and ask questions to other mothers and the MAVINS team.

Evidence suggests that mothers who have support and access to evidence based information increase their success with their lactation goals. Our goals are to help families increase breastfeeding success and continued duration of lactation for the healthy development and growth of infants; consistent with the World Health Organization’s goals of continued breastfeeding for two years and beyond.
