Breastfeeding New Mom's Group

Baby Basics III: New Mom’s group meets one morning a week.  New mom’s and their babies are welcome to join the group as early as two weeks old and usually stay up through two months.  This class addresses many of the new and exciting experiences new mom’s face.  Each week has a main topic of discussion as well as many opportunities for the new mom’s to ask questions. It is not only a great way to get all those questions new mom’s think about all night long answered, but it is also a great way to meet other new mom’s that live in the area.
