Breastfeeding support group meets biweekly

The Columbia Gorge Breastfeeding Coalition has formed a mother-to-mother support group to offer a place to turn during this important time. The group is facilitated by a certified lactation consultant who listens and guides the discussion.

The goals for the group are:

n Share breastfeeding information and personal experiences

n Mutually support and learn from each other

n Increase women’s ability and confidence to nourish their babies

n Discuss successful strategies for mothers returning to work while breastfeeding

The support group meets at Riverside Church at Fourth and State streets in Hood River, from noon to 1 p.m. on the following Wednesdays:

Oct. 9 and 23, Nov. 6 and 20, Dec. 4 and 18, Jan. 8 and 22, Feb. 5 and 19, March 5 and 19, and April 2 and 16.

Those interested are invited to enjoy and offer support in an environment of ease and respect.

For more information call Jennifer McCauley at 541-387-6344 or Ellen Mallon at 541-387-7131.
