Breastfeeding Support: The Baby Bistro

1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month: 10-11 a.m.
Free; pre-registration is not required; just come!

Come and meet other women who are breastfeeding their babies! This free drop-in group is a collaboration between Berks County Breastfeeding Coalition and Penn State Health St. Joseph that focuses on allowing breastfeeding mothers to support each other in a warm, nurturing environment. Breastfeeding mothers and their babies are welcome to drop in for a cup of tea, relax, and chat with others about what’s going on as a new mom. Staff trained in lactation are available to answer any breastfeeding questions with accurate, up-to-date information. Weight checks are free. Moms and babies can come for as many weeks as they would like.
