AUGUST 24, 2016
South Carolina Breastfeeding Coalition Quarterly Meeting

“The Milky Way is a documentary exposé about breastfeeding in the United States. We show how
women can reclaim their birthright and restore the nursing mother archetype. More than a
breastfeeding promotion film, this is a film by, for, and about” women. It is about the knowledge that
inherently resides in every woman, how to access that knowledge and how to trust what we already
know. It is a film that inspires women to say, “I can do that! I want to do that!”
