The Milky Way Documentary Trailer from Amy Rosner on Vimeo.

Nurses and lactation consultants Jennifer Davidson and Chantal Molnar kept hearing similar, troubling breastfeeding stories from clients: lack of support, confusing and conflicting information even from medical professionals, being urged to try formula at the first hint of breastfeeding challenges, being afraid or embarrassed to nurse in public. It’s no surprise with all this misinformation and these obstacles that America has one of the lowest breastfeeding rates in the entire world! In an effort to turn the tide, the pair produced The Milky Way, a new documentary featuring Jennifer’s experiences as well as interviews with civilian and celebrity moms (Hey there, Alanis Morissette!), medical experts such as popular pediatrician Dr. Jay Gordon, and even an art history professor who examines the way that mothers are depicted in religious art. Designed to empower moms and moms-to-be and encourage them to get the support and knowledge they deserve about breastfeeding, The Milky Way is available for purchase or rent on iTunes and On Demand.
