Welcome to Milk and Cookies!

We are a group of parents who wanted to enact some change on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. We started out small, with our main goal being to support each other through our lactation journey, whatever that looked like. We have now grown to be a force for change here on campus:

-working on parental leave issues

-starting a dependent care grant

-increasing and improving lactations spaces

-building a campus-wide lactation policy

-hosting pregnancy workshops to inform soon-to-be parents about their rights

-creating “return to work” lactation packs for new moms coming back to work

-continuing to support each other through our work-life balance juggling acts

-meeting with university officials

-meeting with Colorado state legislators

We would love to continue to grow and help other communities with the resources we have discovered. Feel free to reach out at AMCmilkandcookies@gmail.com or on this site!
