Mother and Baby Support Groups
Hosted by Rosann Parr, RNC, IBCLC
Our support group for new mothers and their babies offers educational information, comfort and understanding for new moms. Whether breastfeeding or formula feeding, all mothers can share valuable information and gain needed support by listening to others. The group also provides the opportunity to form new and lasting friendships.
Breast and bottle feeding, parenting skills, growth and development of your baby, and returning to work are among the long list of topics and subjects discussed at our gatherings. Our groups are filled with laughter and excitement as new parents share their baby’s stories and newest milestones!
