Milk with Mommy: Breastfeeding Support Group
Milk with Mommy is a free breastfeeding support group that meets twice a week and is led by a certified lactation consultant. Milk with Mommy is open to anyone in the community and offers a casual environment for moms and babies to connect with each other. Since measuring how much milk a baby receives can be a challenge when breastfeeding, we provide an infant scale to weigh a baby before and after feeding. This venue also provides a social outlet for moms during their transition after delivery.
Milk with Mommy groups take place at A Woman's Place weekly on Tuesdays, with one session beginning at 10:15 am and a second beginning at 12 pm. Groups are open to moms and babies. Questions? Call 850-431-4928.
