Continuing to Breastfeed When You Return to Work/School Continuing to breastfeed can be challenging when returning to work/school including under this present shelter-in-place policy. Learn how to manage your work commitments while continuing to meet your breastfeeding goals.
Feeding Transitions - This class addresses the what, when, why, and how to introduce the developmental shift of infant breastfeeding to solid foods, and the initiation of the weaning process.
Mother-to-Mother Monthly Support Groups:
Meet other moms, encourage and learn from each other, and get help resolving infant feeding difficulties. Regardless of where you are in your lactation journey, we would love to have you join us! Babies, partners and community members are welcome to attend. You do not have to be breastfeeding to attend. No RSVP necessary. These sessions will be available on Zoom. Information on how to join the zoom will be sent to the Lactation Support Program (LSP) listserv. If you would like to be added to our listserv, please register for the LSP.
