I had a very iconic meltdown in one of the support groups…other mothers were tearing up with me, everyone really felt what I was feeling…I left there on cloud nine.” -Kristen, Support Group Attendee

The Holly Program: The Holly Program is named after Holly Lucard, IBCLC. Holly was a dear friend and colleague. We met when we were involved in the Nursing Mothers Advisory Council as volunteer breastfeeding counselors. She also answered the NMAC Hotline which was in her home. It was a hotline at that time because Holly answered every call or returned the call the minute she returned home. She frequently got out of bed to answer the phone as she could never let a stressed mother leave a voicemail at 3AM.
Holly and I both became International Board Certified Lactation Consultants and were excited about taking a professional step to helping breastfeeding moms. When the BRC was ready to open its doors, I envisioned working with Holly! Unfortunately, Holly never saw the opening as she passed away.
The decision was made! The program for our low income mothers was to be named “The Holly Program” in honor of this amazing woman! Click here to donate to the Holly Program.
Make It Last Program: Research shows that the peer support is the key to keeping mothers breastfeeding longer. In 2007, the Cochrane Review determined that peer counseling extended the length of partial breastfeeding and exclusive breastfeeding. Of course we know that that longer breastfeeding duration leads to better health outcomes for both mom and baby.
Mothers who received help from the Make It Last Program since 2003, tell us time and again that they would not have successfully breastfed without visiting the BRC’s support groups. They tell us how reassuring it is to find out they are not alone in their questions, struggles, and hopes.
The program costs $21,100 annually and we need your help to keep it going! Make a difference in the lives of moms and babies! Do it today! Make a donation to the Make It last Program. If you are looking for the perfect heart-felt gift for a friend or special someone, make a donation to the Make It Last Program in their honor!
Our Women of Color Scholarship for aspiring IBCLCs was put in place in order to increase diversity among the IBCLC profession! Each scholarship costs the BRC $10,000. Give to our WOC Scholarship HERE!
