Alicia Silverstone - Alicia Silverstone Launches Breast Milk-sharing Service For New Mums

Actress Alicia Silverstone has launched a breast milk-sharing service for mothers who struggle to nurse their newborns.

The Clueless star, who has a two-year-old son with husband Christopher Jarecki, has founded Kind Mama Milk Share, which connects mums unable to produce enough milk for their babies with healthy donors.

In a post on her official website, The Kind Life, she writes, "A couple weeks ago, another mama I know gave birth to a son. She e-mailed to let me know how things were going, and she was beside herself. She'd tried to do everything so that this baby would have the healthiest, happiest start in life - she nourished herself during pregnancy with clean, kind foods; had a beautiful home birth; and planned to breastfeed from now until her son could say, 'No thanks.' But because of a breast reduction surgery, she found she wouldn't be able to make enough milk for him, no matter how much precious boobie time they spent together. She tried reaching out in her community for donor milk, but it was almost impossible to figure out what kind of lifestyle choices the donors had made...

"A lot of women unfortunately have a similar struggle... And because we are a community of beautiful souls who recognize the importance of food as health, I say we help support those mamas and babies who need a hand during one of the most important times in their lives... If you have milk to share -post it! If you are in need of milk - post it! Think of all the babies we can help raise together!"
