New mothers have many questions and concerns about breastfeeding in the weeks leading up to and after birth. Breastfeeding support groups
are a wonderful way to exchange information and experiences. Going to a group is a great reason to get out of the house, to talk with other women, and to make new friends.

Some topics discussed at the meetings are:
 Breastfeeding Barriers & Building Bridges    Returning to Work & Pumping
 Adjusting To Life With A Baby     Questions & Concerns You May Have
   Nursing On-The -Go
