Breastfeeding Support Group for Nursing Mothers
Visit with other breastfeeding mothers and their babies in a virtual or in-person meeting designed to be relaxed and supportive. Ask questions and discuss various aspects of breastfeeding and lactation. Led by an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant, these sessions will boost confidence, increase understanding of breast-feeding challenges and solutions, and lend on-going support to nursing mothers.
Women with clinical problems which require hands-on evaluation and assistance are encouraged to schedule a private consultation, currently available through the Infant Feeding Clinic. Appointments require a Pediatrician’s referral. For more information, call the lactation line at (314) 996-5747, or call the Infant Feeding Clinic directly at (314) 996-3500.
For the safety of all our little ones, moms are invited to attend the in-person groups with their infant up until the baby begins crawling/walking. Our setup is geared towards mothers and younger infants, rather than mobile infants, and everyone’s safety is our top priority! Our virtual option allows additional flexibility for moms and babies of any age to participate.
When: Thursdays, 10:30 a.m. - noon
Where: Virtual or in-person:
