Laporte, CO (PRWEB) August 1, 2005 -
Â Motherlove Herbal Company, the trusted leader in personal care and herbal supplements for pregnancy, breastfeeding and babies, celebrates World Breastfeeding Week, August 1 Â 7, in partnership with La Leche League International (LLLI.) Motherlove is a gold-level sponsor in the 2005 La Leche League USA World Breastfeeding Week, http://www.lllusa.org/lllusa/sponsors.html. This event promotes awareness on the benefits of breastfeeding and provides education and training. The weeklong celebration carries into the entire month of August where Motherlove is also donating to breastfeeding awareness events nationwide.
"Breastfeeding is a natural safety net against the worst effects of poverty," says James P. Grant, former executive director for UNICEF. The benefits of breastfeeding have long been recognized as a major contributor to the overall health of both mother and baby. Lactation consultants, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization and many other experts encourage women to breastfeed for one year or longer. As study after study reveals, breast milk provides the best infant nutrition, protects against infection and supports brain development. It also has many benefits for mothersÂ health and wellbeing.

Motherlove is also celebrating its 15th anniversary with the launch of the Nurturing Life Foundation, http://www.motherlove.com/nurturinglifefoundation.php, MotherloveÂs gift back to mothers everywhere. The Nurturing Life Foundation is donating a portion of the companyÂs after-tax profits to promote breastfeeding awareness and support mothers-in-need nationwide. It is also providing scholarships to the Breastfeeding Peer Counselor (BPC) Program, an LLLI program.
The key to MotherloveÂs success is its uncompromised quality and commitment as an educational resource on breastfeeding and natural personal care during pregnancy and beyond. Â15 years ago, there were no products available to address the specific concerns of pregnancy and breastfeeding that were truly pure and organic,Â says Kathryn Higgins, founder of Motherlove. All of Motherlove's products are made using certified organic herbs without any synthetic ingredients whatsoever -- there are no petroleum-based ingredients (such as mineral oil), artificial fragrances, dyes or preservatives (such as methyl and propyl paraben) that are commonly found in body care products. All of MotherloveÂs products are designed to provide safe, holistic alternatives for mothers who are concerned about what they use during their pregnancies, while breastfeeding and on babyÂs delicate skin.
