Breastfeeding Support Group

Breastfeeding can be a special time for you and your baby, but there may be some bumps in the road along the way. Finley's Certified Lactation Counselors or Certified Breast Feeding Educators are committed to helping you have a positive breastfeeding experience by providing a breastfeeding support group. Educators are available to answer questions, assist with nursing and track your baby's weight. Attendees can also talk to other moms who may be having similar issues. It's a great time to network with other nursing moms!

The Breastfeeding Support Group meets every Tuesdays in the Delhi Medical Center 3rd Floor Conference Room.  No pre-registration required. Click here for full dates and times.
