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.

Moms and babies are welcome to stop by A Woman’s Place on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10:30 a.m. and noon for the open group.  Questions?  Call 431-4928.

Often Milk with Mommy hosts special guests to help moms and babies, including:

  • A music therapist to demonstrate how music and play can encourage baby’s learning while having fun
  • A pediatric physical therapist to review importance of tummy time and strategies to incorporate supervised tummy time into your baby’s daily routine along with some important tips on how to encourage healthy practices for your baby’s physical developmental milestones
  • An adult physical therapist to discuss pelvic health, including normal healing and function for moms after delivery
  • A registered dietitian to discuss "healthy eating on the go" for new moms and "starting solids" for babies
  • A pediatric ARNP to review a variety of topics, like FAQ regarding respiratory cold/flu or vaccinations
