Information

Our lactation consultants direct a group discussion and are available to answer questions at all four of our breastfeeding support groups. Participants have the opportunity to talk to other moms, share your breastfeeding experiences, discuss challenges you are facing, and encourage one another in your breastfeeding journey. A baby scale is available for you to check baby's weight gain and to see how much milk your baby is getting after each feeding. Registration is not required. Call 241-6570 for more information.
