Free monthly breastfeeding support at the MyBirth Community Studio
Faciliatated monthly by Melissa Yeager, CPD, CLE, mom of four
Join us the second Thursday of every month from 10am-12pm in the MyBirth Community Studio as we talk all things boobies, breastfeeding, and babies. Bring your little one (babes in arms only, preferably) and a snack if you’d like, we’ll make coffee & tea. Melissa is a Certified Lactation Educator (CAPPA) and would love to talk through your breastfeeding experience.
This group is free and open to all breastfeeding parents. You DO NOT have to be a MyBirth client or student to attend.
Come have your morning coffee and connect with other mamas in their first year postpartum. MyBirth will provide coffee, tea, and fixings. Feel free to bring a snack to share but no pressure! This will be a low key hang out so drop in anytime and leave when you like.
Open to ALL new moms, not just clients or students of MyBirth.
Mark your calendars, as we will gather the last Thursday of each month from 10am-12pm at the MyBirth Community Studio.
This informal gathering is led by MyBirth Postpartum doula, Sommer Humphries, who can answer pretty much any postpartum or baby question that you may have.
