Breastfeeding help and support

Breastfeeding help and support

Meet other breastfeeding mothers and share your experiences and tips in a friendly, supportive environment. Bring your baby to a breastfeeding support group and join other mothers for an informal discussion of your breastfeeding concerns. Support groups are led by a Scripps lactation consultant/educator who is available to offer practical suggestions and guidance.


There is no charge to join a breastfeeding support group and registration is not required.
