Breastfeeding Support Group
Fri, April 7, 2017, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
Wild Was Mama and Lactation Wellness offers a Breastfeeding Support Group on Fridays from 10:30-12pm. Babies of all ages are welcome!
The support group will be led by Patricia McGuire IBCLC, (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant). In a relaxed setting, Patricia will be offering hands on support and accurate information on breastfeeding and related topics.
Before nursing, babies can be weighed on a digital scale to help access how much milk the baby is receiving from the breast. Moms will have some one on one time to address individual needs as well as opportunities to meet and socialize with other moms.
