Breastfeeding Support Groups Starting in Shelby and Jefferson Counties

Starting soon, hopefully next month, breastfeeding support groups will be beginning in Shelby and Jefferson Counties. They will be led by a Certified Lactation Counselor and / or Postpartum Doula. Every mother, mother to be, and any others supportive of breastfeeding are welcome to attend. Topics will be chosen for each meeting but each meeting will also be guided by the individuals that attend. Birth professionals such as, labor and delivery nurses, postpartum nurses, doulas, certified lactation counselors, registered dietitians, nutritionists, herbalists, and international board certified lactation consultants  are welcome to attend. For a small fee certain meetings will be offered to professionals for continuing education hours or CEUs. As always mothers are invited to attend for free. Children of all ages are welcome to attend. If you have multiple children and need extra assistance in the form of childcare please contact Susan Betke to arrange mothers' helpers. I am a mother of 7 and I understand the need for new mothers to interact with others but also to keep their children near. Please contact Susan Betke (me) through this site for more information. We can also be found on Facebook for more information about meeting times.
