Heather McFadden - Lactation Consultant

Looking for a Breastfeeding Support Group?

Find schedules and locations below.

At a breastfeeding support group mothers can expect to get assistance with positioning and latch, as well as receive answers to their breastfeeding related questions. Babies can be weighed before and after feeding to get an idea of how much they are taking from the breast. With support from the lactation consultant, mothers can share experiences with each other. Mother to mother support is the ideal learning environment for the new parent.

Check schedule below for exact dates. Drop-ins are welcome but please call or email to confirm you are coming as space is limited.

I also provide home consultations.
