About Mom 2 Mom KMC
Mom2Mom KMC was founded by a neonatologist at LRMC and his wife, in recognition of the need for peer support for breastfeeding mothers in the Kaiserslautern Military community. In its early days, Mom2Mom KMC was a considerably smaller operation with less than a handful of volunteers managing the program and calls for help. Now, over ten years later, we are designated an official Private Organization through Ramstein Air Base. Our membership currently numbers over 1,000 people around the world, and is growing daily. That figure includes a local voluntary team of peer mentors numbering approximately 40, and a 5-member Board of Directors. From humble beginnings, the seed has been nurtured and we are so proud of the organization’s achievements and expansion over the years.
Mom2Mom KMC is a network of breastfeeding families that helps new mothers overcome the difficulties of living far from family support in an overseas military community. Our core mission has always been to support each mother in meeting her individual breastfeeding goals. We provide support, encouragement, and assistance through peer mentorship, education and outreach, and opportunities to meet other local breastfeeding families. Our vision is a community-wide culture in which breastfeeding is the standard for nourishing and nurturing infants and young children, where each mother has the reassurance and acceptance necessary to attain her own personal success.
Whether you are breastfeeding currently, have nursed in the past or are a breastfeeding supporter, we would love to meet you at any one of our weekly or seasonal events. Our group is diverse and dynamic and serves to promote friendship, kindness and a supportive breastfeeding environment.
