COVID-19 Response: We realize that families still need lactation support during the current health crisis and we are adapting to fit our families needs while keeping our community safe by offering Virtual Lactation Lounges through Zoom. Parents and caregivers can drop in during any stage of their lactating journey to ask questions and discuss challenges surrounding feeding. From pregnancy to introducing food, and the entire weaning process – our Lactation Support Peer Counselors are here for YOU!
