The Motherhood Café - The Breastfeeding Cafe : A Practical Guide to How Things Work, Variations of Normal and When to Seek Help

  • Webster 150 Linden Avenue Lynchburg, VA, 24503 United States (map)

The Motherhood Collective is not a “breastfeeding only” organization and we fully support all methods of infant feeding. The best baby is a FED baby and the way you feed your baby is your decision. However, we think breastfeeding is worthy of its own Cafe topic and hope that you find this morning’s information educational -- whether you breastfeed or not! This will be a morning of conversation with some of our area’s most knowledgeable breastfeeding resources. How does breastfeeding work? What should you expect in the earliest days? How do you know if you’re doing it right? What are common issues and how do you know if you have them? What kind of help is available? What are common misconceptions? We hope everyone will leave this topic having learned something new about breastfeeding!

Our programs are FREE and OPEN to the public. See details below for information regarding our FREE childcare, up to age four.

As always, we will also be broadcasting via Facebook Live!

Our Cafe mornings close with peer-led small groups on Pregnancy/Birth, Infancy (0-6 months, 6-12 months) and Parenting. During small group time, we are often able to offer Care Group for those walking through infertility, miscarriage and child loss.

Children under one, can stay right with you. For children between the ages of one and four, we offer FREE on-site childcare.

---Childcare slots are limited and registration is on a first come first serve basis. Childcare reservations will be accepted no sooner than a week prior to a Cafe event and can be made by e-mailing childcare@themotherhoodcollective.org with the following information:
