BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) — Starting May 19, the Mommy and Me breastfeeding support group will begin meeting in a new location.

The group will meet in the St. Charles Family Care Conference Room at 2600 NE Neff Road in Bend on Thursdays from 1-3 p.m.

At meetings, certified lactation consultants provide breastfeeding support, including checking babies’ weight and milk intake and talking to mothers about breastfeeding and parenting issues.

Moms and babies are welcome to drop in at any time during the two-hour meeting. Participants should plan to bring their own nursing pillow and diaper bag.

The Mommy and Me program is also looking for volunteers to help with set-up and tear-down, help mothers weigh their babies, and offer support to new mothers. Interested persons should contact Alicia Walker at [email protected]
