Breastfeeding.com launches the "Expert's Community" supporting Lactation Consultants, Midwives, Doulas, and Child Birth Educators, giving them the chance to connect with others in their profession and expand their practices by connecting with the 2 million new moms each year who visit Breastfeeding.com.

Breastfeeding.com continues to add resources and features to help new mothers find the support and information they need at a critical inflection point in their lives. Rather than spending money on advertising, we use our resources to create better support and services for our audience.

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) July 3rd, 2008. Breastfeeding.com, a premier online resource with 'Everything for the New Mom" launched the Breastfeeding.com "Expert's Community", the first ever social network for an underserved group; birth related medical professionals such as Lactation Consultants, Midwives, Doulas, and Child Birth Educators. The Expert's Community, which is free to join, allows professionals to connect and converse with others in their profession. Moreover, it lets these professionals grow their practices by connecting with the continuing stream of new mothers and mothers-to-be that visit Breastfeeding.com for information and support on breastfeeding and a host of pregnancy and child health issues. Expert's blogs are displayed on the main Breastfeeding.com site, and visitors can find the expert help they need in their area by using the map-powered directories.

"The Expert's Community is a win for both the medical professionals and our regular audience of new and expecting moms," explained Victor Babbitt, president of Breastfeeding.com. "Finding a midwife, doula, or lactation consultant in your area can be challenging. With our directories, a visitor looking for say, a midwife, can use the zoomable maps to find the ones near her, and then click into each professionals profile on the Experts community to learn about them. Making it easy to connect these professionals with potential clients, while at the same time bringing more expert advice into the web is a great use of Web 2.0."

Content such as blogs and articles from Experts will also improve the support available on Breastfeeding.com, which already contains thousands of articles on nursing and child health.

"Each day thousands of women just beginning their life as parents visit our site," continued Babbitt. "Breastfeeding.com continues to add resources and features to help new mothers find the support and information they need at a critical inflection point in their lives. Rather than spending money on advertising, we use our resources to create better support and services for our audience."

Two million brand new mothers each year visit Breastfeeding.com, for information and support on breastfeeding and child health. Breastfeeding.com supplies 'Everything for the New Mom", including comprehensive content and services, and two thriving social networks, one for moms, and another for birth related medical professionals. The site currently has 200,000 monthly unique users, 3 million monthly pageviews, and all traffic is 100% organic; not a single dollar has been spent on advertising.
