Lactation Support Group

  Dear families, our lactation support group is currently suspended during this time. We will resume this service at a later date. Should you have any questions or concerns, please call our office. We appreciate your patience.     

 We are thrilled to announce the beginning of a Lactation Support Group in our office!!  Moderated by our own Beverly Viscusi, CRNP, IBCLC.  
         First and Third Thursday of each month, 11:30 - 1
         Please call the office to register and for more information
         Drop ins welcome

Come and join us for an opportunity to meet with other breastfeeding mothers and to share your own experiences.  Beverly Viscusi , our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant  will be on hand to moderate, answer questions and provide personalized care.  Potential topics to be discussed include:
  • Managing the first few weeks of your baby's life        
  • Pumping and storing milk
  • Managing siblings
  • Returning to work
  • Breast concerns

We will discuss how to to manage a sleepy baby, grazing baby, milk supply issues, weight loss, and taking care of yourself!

 We will discuss reasons for pumping, how and when to pump, equipment used, safe storage of milk, how and when to introduce a bottle to the baby.
You will learn strategies to balance demands of breastfeeding while managing active siblings.

Going back to work will be easier knowing how to maintain an adequate milk supply, how to get the time and privacy to pump, and more.  

You will gain more understanding of breast health issues, latching techniques, positioning baby to enhance comfort and how the patterns of infant feeding change over time.

      The group will meet in our office every first and third thursday of each month.  All are welcome, you do not need to be a patient in our office to attend.  Registration is suggested, not required.  There will be a $15 fee.  Please call our office for more information. 

      We look forward to seeing you!!
