KSHB: Breastfeeding Support Groups Reopened After Pandemic
During the Covid 19 pandemic, education and lactation assistance for new parents was extremely limited. A recent study showed that over 70% of mothers reported not having the support that they needed to reach their breastfeeding goals during the lockdown.
Saint Luke's is pleased that our in-person Breastfeeding Support Groups were been re-opened in the spring to new mothers with children under 3 months. But now, they have expanded access back to mothers and support people at any stage in their breastfeeding journey.
Saint Luke's East lactation consultant Marji Stark and NICU mother, Alex talk to KSHB about the benefits of Saint Luke's Breastfeeding Support Group.
