Mom's Support Group

About This Event

Due to heightened concerns surrounding the coronavirus, this class has been cancelled through April 8.

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).
