Breastfeeding Support Groups and Classes

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.
