Breastfeeding Friends is a free moms group designed to support you in the art of breastfeeding. The program, created in 2015, focuses on important issues, including breastfeeding technique, making enough milk, and how to support the health and wellness of your family. We are here to listen, to guide, and to celebrate the growth of your family and little ones.
Breastfeeding Friends meets the third Saturday of the month at 10:00 a.m. at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital.
A typical Breastfeeding Friends meeting includes:
• Casual discussion, q&a
• Guest speakers
• Activities to support bonding
• Free help & weight checks
Who Is Breastfeeding Friends For?
Breastfeeding Friends is for breastfeeding mothers. We encouraged mothers to attend before delivery for support and encouragement, and after delivery to share successes and challenges during their breastfeeding journey. We will discuss ways to bond with your baby and support health and wellness for your whole family.
