Look for breastfeeding support once baby arrives?

Mother & Baby Groups, faciliated by a Lactation Consulant/Registered Nurse, are free for all mothers in our community to provide support, encouragement and advice on parenthood, breastfeeding, and questions that that arise after going home.

Mother & Baby: Newborns 0-6 Weeks

This new group (for moms, grandmothers, and female caregivers only) is focused on adjusting to the first few weeks of parenthood to support new mothers and their babies. Occasional guest speakers will present on topics such as: infant nutrition, infant growth & development.

Mother & Baby: Newburyport & Haverhill

Formerly named Lactation Support Group, the Mother & Baby Group is facilitated by a Lactation Consultant/Registered Nurse to support every woman’s mothering experience.
