Mom's Support Group

About This Event

This free, ongoing group is an opportunity for moms and babies to get together in a relaxed environment to express the joys and concerns of being a new mother. We discuss a variety of topics including nursing, newborn care, parenting, and other common experiences. We also provide a scale for you to weigh your baby every week. The group is facilitated by a Registered Nurse/International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
