The group is administered by accredited peer breastfeeding supporters and other experienced nursing moms. It is a “closed group,” meaning what is posted here will not show up on your personal Facebook Timeline or in your friends’ newsfeeds. (Your posts will, however, be viewable by anyone who is also a member of this group.)
