Our Mission: Creating a healthier community by helping mothers breastfeed their babies.
We provide expert help from international board certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs), including a comprehensive feeding assessment and follow up care until your baby is feeding well. It's what we love to do.
Breastfeeding Information Center
Want trustworthy, reliable breastfeeding information any time of the day (or night)? It's all here in our Breastfeeding Information Center, guided by years of experience and the latest research.
Breast Pumps and Insurance Coverage
It's all about quality when it comes to a breast pump. MilkWorks is a DME (durable medical equipment) provider for most private insurance plans and for all Nebraska Medicaid plans.
News & Events
A smidge of the journey through the years of becoming mom at 18, single, broke, yet full of hope and ambition. A short note of how one consult, one other mom full of compassion, and a place that knew I could. When I first found out that I was going to be a mother, I had already decided to quit high school and settled with a GED instead, which I got right away. One other thing I was certain of is that, I wanted to breastfeed. I always had hoped for the “ideal” family, married, home owning, successful, and comfortable. Beginning so early and unexpectedly, my journey was far from a start I had dreamed.
The first week of August happens to be World Breastfeeding Week and I am celebrating by catching up on the East End of London and those wonderful midwives at Nonnatus House. I find myself catching my breath as Call the Midwife explores the changing times of the early 1960's, a time period that was pivotal for many social issues and lifestyle practices.
Creating a supportive environment for breastfeeding mothers sounds so easy. Doctors and midwives encourage moms to take a breastfeeding class. In the hospital, the nurses promote newborn skin to skin contact. Some moms will seek outpatient breastfeeding support from an IBCLC to overcome challenges. Most insurance plans provide a breast pump so breastfeeding moms can return to work or school. We have legislation that makes breastfeeding in public a civil right. Then a new mom leaves her house with her baby and breastfeeding is nowhere to be seen…..
