This weekend I was asked to photograph The Miracle Milk Stroll, an event organized by our local Motherbaby Naturals community. The Stroll took place at Sand Island Park in Bethlehem on Saturday to raise awareness and solidarity for the human milk donation cause, helping babies that could benefit from mommy milk.
Human milk saves lives.
The Miracle Milk Stroll is a project of the Best for Babes Foundation. Best for Babes is the only mainstream, independent non-profit dedicated to changing the cultural perception of breastfeeding and human milk and to removing the barriers that prevent millions of moms annually from realizing their personal feeding goals.
Our local host was Kiera Lichtenwalner, owner of the amazing Bethlehem shop which curates quality products that support natural living and parenting, offers doula services, as well as breastfeeding and babywearing support. If you haven't stopped in to the Motherbaby Naturals shop, make sure to check it out- I am never disappointed with the selection of natural skin care products, cloth diapers, wooden toys, and Kiera's very friendly assistance with babywearing!
So many wonderful local business supported the Miracle Milk Stroll with donations- from baked goods to felted art to Lularoe leggings! It was a lovely morning of yoga, community building, babywearing, breastfeeding, and family time at the park! So many awesome mamas in our community who are donating milk to babies in need! I feel truly honored to be a part of such a supportive group of mamas in the Lehigh Valley.
