We are showing up at so many local popular events that I saw people searching the web about if there would be a lactation station @ the Elkhart 4H fair and there will be! Apparently, they have had a place there for years. Take a look at the article for more details

One in eight babies is born premature (March of Dimes Peristats, 2010). Premature or ill infants are at a much higher risk for devastating infections if they are fed formula instead of human milk. These haunting statistics, combined with our belief that human milk is the optimal form of nutrition and immunologic protection for babies, is the reason for what we do. To say it best, human milk fights infection while providing ideal nutrition. However, a mother may not be able to provide this precious resource because:
Premature delivery can cause delayed milk production or an insufficient supply
We recognize the time, effort, and love you have put into pumping, labeling, and freezing your milk. If you have extra, please share this amazing resource!
Mom’s own milk is always ideal for the baby – but when this is not available, human milk donations from generous mothers like you are the next best option. Organizations like the American Academy of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization agree! IMMB follows strict screening, processing, and dispensing guidelines established by the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA) to ensure the safety of pasteurized donor human milk (PDHM). Babies may receive PDHM because of the following:
This is the current state of affairs as of July 16, 2012.
We do not have enough Milk to make it through the week. Please call or email if you can help (317) 535-1670 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi everyone! I'm Jeri Hoag and I am a pro photographer located in Goshen, IN that specializes in documentary birth photography covering the Michiana area including birth center, hospital or home births. I also specialize in
Photography has always been a passion of mine since my high school and college years, but I kept it as a hobby until the summer of 2008, about one year after giving birth to my third child. This is when I realized that I had already forgotten some of those precious moments from his birth and the few images my husband captured for me didn’t include him since he was behind the camera. It hit me then that those moments are fleeting and I wanted to capture them for other women experiencing the miracle of birth. I thought, why not offer birth photography? After all, giving birth to your child is one of the most amazing, life-changing experiences of your life.

brought something to share briefly: a current birth-field piece of
legislation update, a new-to-you technique for some aspect of labor, a
helpful way of dealing with common pregnancy complaints, etc. We
ended up having plenty to discuss without these added topics, but it's
always good to share new information when it comes out. We may not
get to everyone's or anyone's piece of information, or there may be
some overlap. It will just be good to go home knowing something new.
Again, if we fill the time just fellowshipping, that's entirely
