NANTICOKE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL TO HOLD BREASTFEEDING SUPPORT GROUP

October 12, 2017

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.

On Wednesday, November 1 at 10:00 am, Nanticoke Memorial Hospital will hold The Mom’s Circle, a free breastfeeding support group, 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. This group meets the first Wednesday of each month. 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

For more information, contact Jacalyn Bradley, Nanticoke’s Lactation Consultant, at 302-629-6611, extension 2234. To learn more about women’s health services provided by Nanticoke, visit www.nanticoke.org/womens-health.
