Learn More About ABM’s New Membership Category

It takes a village to support a successful breastfeeding journey. In order to grow the breastfeeding medicine community, the Academy is delighted to engage health care team members with a new affiliate membership category open to non-physician healthcare providers who promote, protect, and support breastfeeding families.

The new ABM affiliate membership includes an online subscription to ABM’s journal, Breastfeeding Medicine. This premier journal provides evidence-based information for understanding the complexities and benefits of breastfeeding for parents and infants.
