What we're about

Are you pregnant and curious about breastfeeding? Struggling with breast pain or your newborn’s poor latch? Happily bottle-feeding your growing baby and interested in meeting other moms?

Come to one of our 10 drop-in support groups around Boston! We are a coalition of mothers, peer counselors, and certified lactation counselors and consultants (CLCs and IBCLCs) who come together every week to support YOU. Our groups offer professional lactation counseling for interested mothers, fun playgroups for your young child and support for anyone struggling with the ups and down of parenting. Through a partnership with Cradles to Crayons, we also offer free kid-packs, diapers and other essential items for families undergoing financial hardship.

Fathers, partners, grandparents and all types of caregivers are very welcome to join us! Learn more about our coalition and check out additional resources at www.bostonbreastfeeding.weebly.com.
