(You do not need to deliver at the hospital to attend)
Breastfeeding Support Group
The breastfeeding support group is a great place to follow up with your baby after your discharge from the hospital. Moms with babies from birth through six months of age are welcome. It is facilitated by Patricia Bonasera who has more than 35 years working with mothers and their babies. There are usually two IBCLCs in the group to make sure that we can accommodate everyone who needs help.
There is lots of time for questions and simple latching assistance. We provide anticipatory advice and encourage mothers to share their experiences with each other. We are the only Breastfeeding support group that is open to fathers attending. (It is sometimes very hard to travel in the first few weeks without help. It is also sometimes easier to have assistance to remember if you are in a sleep deprived state.) We are in a large theater style setting which will allow privacy if you desire.
We always have a Medela Baby Weigh Scale which will accurately check the weight of your baby and allow for the weighing of a feeding.
Come by with your baby to share and ask your questions, we are always interested!
