Nursing Mothers Advisory Council
Breastfeeding Is Best For Baby!!
The Nursing Mothers Advisory Council, Inc. (NMAC) is a non-profit, volunteer organization serving areas of Bucks, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania. NMAC is comprised of a group of trained volunteer women who have breastfed their children and who wish to help others have a positive nursing experience. NMAC volunteers offer support and counseling, free of charge, without judgment.
The purpose of this web site is to enhance the support services we provide to our breastfeeding mothers. We have a number of resources here to help you find information about breastfeeding, learn about our mom’s meetings, and help you to find a chapter that is in your area.
We’re gearing up for our 5th Annual Family Fun Day in support of World Breastfeeding Week! This years event will be held on Saturday, August 3rd from 10AM–2PM (rain date 8/4, 12PM-4PM) at Mason’s Mill Park in Huntingdon Valley. We hope you’ll join us for a day fun-filled including food, raffles, and family friendly entertainment. We’ll also be a host site for The Big Latch On!
