Support Groups

All support groups are FREE and everyone is welcome!

Breastfeeding Support Groups:

  • Milk Monologues (every Wednesday @ 1:00pm)
    • This breastfeeding support groups for infants (non-mobile) is our longest running support group and meets every Wednesday at 1:00 pm. While breastfeeding support is the group’s main focus, we have found that it is also a driving force for discussions related to parenting, returning to work, interacting with grandparents etc. It is our gauge for what our client-families are concerned about, interested in and topics that may need to be addressed by Educated Mommy. A Certified Lactation Counselor facilitates this group.
    • Meet Sarah!

  • Babywearing Basics (1st Wednesday @ 6:30pm and 3rd Saturday @ 9:00am)

  • Babywearing 102 (2nd Saturday @ 3:00pm and 4th Tuesday @ 6:30pm)
