Drop In Clinics

Drop In Clinics are a great way for a mom and baby to get a little extra help with breastfeeding and connect with other nursing moms. At a Drop-In Clinic an IBCLC will weigh your baby, give you some pointers on latching, getting comfortable while nursing your baby and will help you trouble shoot the challenges you are experiencing. The Drop-In Clinics below provide a comfortable relaxed atmosphere where breastfeeding is the norm.
