Free Breastfeeding Talk (call for times)
This free drop-in group is a great way to meet other nursing moms and to get ongoing support and assistance. The group is staffed by one of their Board Certified Lactation Consultants and helps you find answers to all your breastfeeding questions. Common topics include: increasing milk supply, managing over-supply or over-active let-down, selecting a pump, expressing and storing breast milk, preparing to return to work, practicing positions for nursing in public or nursing lying down, and identifying normal feeding and sleeping patterns.
Assistance with latch and positioning techniques may be offered and an infant scale is available for following your baby's growth. While this drop-in breastfeeding group is not a substitute for an individual lactation consultation, minor or ongoing concerns and issues can be addressed in this setting.
