Mother Baby Hour: with Breastfeeding Support 

For Parenting and Breastfeeding Support from late pregnancy through your baby's first year please join our local Mother Baby Hour community. For over twenty years, Mother Baby Hour has been connecting new mothers and their babies throughout the Dane County region. Having a baby and becoming a parent is a time filled with so many changes and unique challenges!

This informal weekly group now meets online to ensure your family's safety and a place for connection when it is needed most. Each hour-long session is facilitated by a nurse and lactation specialist and includes a time to meet other mothers, engage in a weekly discussion topic and receive expert support on breastfeeding and parenting as your baby grows.

In addition to feeding concerns, discussion topics address multiple areas including postpartum transitions, parenting, newborn and older babies. UnityPoint Health - Meriter specialists and community experts are occasional guests.

We welcome expectant parents nearing baby's arrival through baby's first year. Mother Baby Hour - Screen Time is available to new mothers regardless where you gave birth.

You can also join our new Family Baby Hour - Screen Time that meets on Thursdays and is available to all parents.
