About the Charity
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.
