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.
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.
Formerly named Lactation Support Group, the Mother & Baby Group is facilitated by a Lactation Consultant/Registered Nurse to support every woman’s mothering experience. You do not need to be a breastfeeding mom to enjoy this group. All aspects of mothering are discussed. Guest speakers will present periodically on topics such as car seat safety, infant nutrition, and infant growth & development.
