Breastfeeding Support Group

The Breastfeeding Support Group at Newton-Wellesley Hospital provides breastfeeding support and assistance to new mothers who have been discharged from the hospital setting.

Our support group began in June 2009 and has already had 150 mother and baby participants. Mothers learn breastfeeding techniques and can ask our lactation consultants breastfeeding questions. Many of our participants find it not only helpful but comforting to hear how other mothers are managing with breastfeeding a new baby.

Alert: Support Group Does NOT Meet on Thursday, Dec. 24 and Thursday, Dec. 31.

Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00 - 3:00 pm
Where: Newton-Wellesley Ambulatory Care Center - Newton
Wells Avenue Conference Room
Directions to Newton-Wellesley Ambulatory Care Center - Newton
Cost: Free
Eligibility: All new mothers are eligible to participate - whether they delivered at Newton-Wellesley or another hospital. Mothers must have already been discharged from the hospital.

Support Group Leaders
Donna Norris, BSN, RN, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
