About Us

The Breastfeeding Mothers' Support Group (BMSG) Singapore is a charity run entirely by mothers, for mothers. It is the first and only non-profit organisation in Singapore that supports and reaches out to pregnant and breastfeeding women through our counselling services, workshops and talks as well as public events.

Founded in 1975, we help mothers who are trying to, or planning to, breastfeed with peer-to-peer support, giving them the latest evidence-based information so that they can make informed decisions for their own and their babies' health. Each year we train a new batch of volunteer counsellors who then donate their time and expertise running workshops and manning the helpline and social media groups.

BMSG is not a government-funded entity and we do not receive regular fundings from any agencies - we are powered by donations from the community. BMSG is managed mostly by volunteers with just two part-time admin staff; all counsellors are volunteers who do not take any payment or gratuity. Your donation will go towards training and operational funds.

Our Programmes

Our mission is to:
1. support breastfeeding mothers
2. educate pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and families
3. advocate for breastfeeding mothers and raise public awareness

We achieve these aims by the following:

1. Counselling and mother support

- Counselling is available by phone and WhatsApp 365 days a year. Phone lines are staffed by volunteer counsellors who are also mothers.

- Our Facebook group has over 22,000 members and is moderated by our volunteer counsellors. Counsellors also respond to every breastfeeding query posted by mothers individually.

- Monthly mum-to-mum meet ups for mothers to discuss their breastfeeding issues are also facilitated by volunteer counsellors.

2. Education

- Monthly breastfeeding workshops for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and families.

- Monthly workshops on breastfeeding and returning to work.

- We run an annual counsellor training programme which educates our new volunteers in the latest breastfeeding guidance and counselling skills.
