Breastfeeding is natural, but it doesn’t always come naturally! During the early weeks after birth, moms & babies experience challenges as they both learn how to breastfeed. Even the most dedicated nursing moms at times want to give up.
Nanticoke Memorial Hospital hosts The Mom’s Circle, a free breastfeeding support group, on the first Wednesday of each month from 10 to 11 am in the Nursing Conference Room. The Mom’s Circle is a safe place for moms to come for support, advice and friendship from both experienced nursing moms and new moms. Registration is not required.
Activities will include:
- Interaction with other nursing moms & babies to promote confidence
- Mom-to-mom conversations
- Opportunities to share parenting advice & information
- Assistance with breastfeeding issues or concerns provided by our Internationally Board-Certified Lactation Consultant
- New topics each meeting geared toward the group, such as the first 2 weeks, night feedings, and returning to work
