Weekly Breastfeeding Support Group
IF INFANT IS LOSING WEIGHT/slow to gain weight, struggling with latch, mom is in severe nipple or breast pain - it is advised you schedule an individualized visit with a lactation consultant or notify your pediatric provider. You are welcome to attend the support group as a SUPPLEMENT to seeing an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) or pediatric provider, but it is essential you have a one-on-one visit with an IBCLC to support “mom & baby”. We can refer you to excellent IBCLC’s in the community or potentially see you at our clinic with our IBCLC.

Come learn tricks (& build community) to make it JOYOUS…
