Latched Mama is not just a breastfeeding clothing company
You've got this, mama, and Latched Mama can help. Scroll down for easy access to support and care that you or a loved one may need. 

Here at Latched Mama our goal is to not just to make beautiful clothes to help mothers simplify their breastfeeding journeys, but to empower women by lifting up their voices, creating a village or showcasing the ones currently surrounding their families, help them find tools to better take care of themselves so they can care for their little ones. The mental load on mothers is heavy, and we believe that by creating community and safe spaces for mothers, regardless of their clothing choices, families will be healthier and happier.  


 Feeling overwhelmed? 

Not sure where to start? 

We've got you, mama. Here at Latched Mama, we are dedicated to creating a safe community of moms offering support to other moms. 

We always say that it’s not about the clothes…it’s about supporting motherhood and building a community of kindness, education, and respect.

As mother's too, we get that when you are always taking care of others it's so hard to remember and know how to take care of ourselves. 

We get the chaos of life, the ups and downs, and we want to offer space for support through all stages of life. 

So, if you want a little more guidance, keep scrolling to see a collection of resources that can help lift you up at any stage in life...

“Latched Mama didn’t just save my confidence as a mom- it GAVE me my confidence as a mom. The difference breastfeeding a baby without Latched Mama and with Latched Mama was night and day. So thankful for this line!!!” -M 💕

“Not to sound cliché but I am so grateful for the LM community. Besides great clothes that make moming easy... and not only you guys at the company level but also the awesome mamas on the latch mama love page. This pandemic has been isolating for everyone and as a mama of two LOs it is life-saving to have a network of supportive women in all different stages of motherhood. Being able to get answers, support and a break from the crazy that fills my news feed is AMAZING! Okay well that’s all. Thank you so much for LM and for what it does for mamas like me. #notallalonebecauseofLMlove” -Chelsea

“Just a shoutout to Melissa and Lindi and the Latched Mama podcast. 

They answered a question of mine with so much thought, compassion, and empathy.

LM clothes are amazing, yes, *and* LM is so much more than clothes to me. Between the Facebook group, the lives, and the podcast, this community has become a great resource, an uplifting part of my day, and honestly helps and supports my self care and mental health.

I don’t know another company that does anything close to what Latched Mama does.” -Gwen

Resources for Communities of Color

Latched Mama is passionate about supporting motherhood and building a community of kindness, education, and respect. This includes supporting people of color in their breastfeeding journey, increasing the number of Certified Lactation Consultants of color, advocating for Black Breastfeeding Week, bringing awareness to the racial inequities in birth, the maternal and infant mortality rate disparities between women of color and white, and the mistreatment of women of color by the medical community. 

The Podcast has featured two episodes from Birth In Color RVA, a Richmond birth, policy, and advocy nonprofit for Maternal Health and Reproductive Justice. Executive Director Kenda Sutton-El and Ebony Allen, doula and NurtureRVA Facilitator, both speak candidly with Melissa on how to honor and celebrate Black Breastfeeding. 

Our blog has also highlighted the racial disparities in breastfeeding success, investigated the Black Maternal Mortality Rate, and provided guidance on racial conversations with children

These are only small steps in a larger societal issue of systemic racism. But we see you, we hear your voices, and you aren't alone. We are committed to making safe spaces for ALL people and bringing awareness to how we and others can make changes together to support communities of color in successful breastfeeding and maternal health outcomes. 

Here are a few additional resources dedicated to maternal health for people of color:
