Breastfeeding Friends

Breastfeeding Friends is a moms group designed to create community and offer free assistance and advice. We are here to listen, guide, and celebrate the growth of your family.

Breastfeeding Friends meets the third Saturday of the month at 10 a.m. at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. We meet in the waiting area in the front lobby of the hospital, behind the row of elevators. One of our Lactation Consultants will meet you there and escort the group to a private meeting space. If you arrive late, please ask guest services for assistance. Nursing babies and siblings are welcome!

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 encourage 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.
