Come to this breastfeeding forum to gain support and advice on your breastfeeding journey.

Many breastfeeding mothers encounter unexpected joys and concerns through the breastfeeding journey. Rather than handle these in isolation, come to The Well-Nourished Baby™ Forum where mothers find a crucial source of support to sustain breastfeeding and quite often release struggles that may occur within the beauty of a breastfeeding relationship. Mothers exchange their experiences and discuss concerns such as milk supply, pumping, going back to work, sleeping or lack of sleep, etc. Someone will inevitably have a suggestion, if not a definitive answer, to the issue at hand.

A gram sensitive scale is available for weighing your baby and if interested, doing before and after breastmilk intake weights.

First Tuesday of every month is an evening forum.

Reservations are required and can be made at the doodle link: http://doodle.com/cy5nrur23mbg6pie

First Forum is always complementary

Pregnant women in their last month are always complementary

One month of Forum is included with privately paid consultation packages.

Gift certificates are available
