Nursing Mothers Counsel of Oregon Announcement

The Nursing Mothers Counsel of Oregon (NMC) is a nonprofit organization that strives to improve health in our communities by advocating a women's right to breastfeed her child. We are developing free breastfeeding classes and other services to provide to our communities.

The Nursing Mothers Counsel of Oregon is actively seeking new volunteers. If you wish to become a phone counselor and have had at least six months of breastfeeding experience, or you do not have the breastfeeding experience and wish to volunteer in other ways, please come to our free training held at Legacy Emmanuel Hospital.

Learn how to counsel women on common breastfeeding issues, train to teach breastfeeding classes, and help improve the rates of breastfeeding in our communities. We are reaching out to diverse populations and really need volunteers that represent these communities. Women of diverse ethnic backgrounds and bilingual women are in very high demand!
