Feeding a baby is more than a physical relationship; it is also an emotional one and is interconnected with a woman's entire postpartum experience.
Each woman needs to make a feeding choice based on what she knows about herself, her baby, and her own unique circumstances.
Feeding Support Groups
Breastfeeding mothers need the support of a community, skilled helpers, and other women. Our weekly breastfeeding support groups provide space for women to come together to gain support around feeding issues and to share information and resources. The support groups are led by Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC). In addition to the Breastfeeding Support Groups, an IBCLC is available to visit our new parents support groups to answer questions and share information and resources.
Referrals for Lactation Consultants
