Milk Sharing Survey!

Have you given, received or facilitated the exchange of breast milk? Our friends Shannon Carter and Beatriz Reyes-Foster at the University of Central Florida are conducting a research study on breast milk sharing. They are interested in any and all experiences, including wet nursing, donating pumped milk, receiving pumped milk, and milk banking. Their broader study focuses specifically on milk sharing in central Florida, but they welcome participants from any location to take their survey. Any personal information will be kept confidential. The survey can be accessed here:
