Classes and Groups

Breastfeeding Class – This class is ideal for first-time mothers or mothers who have had difficulties breastfeeding in the past. The best time to take this class is about a month or two prior to your estimated due date.  Please call 664-5464 to register.

Nursing Moms Group – This group is designed with new mothers in mind, who are new to breastfeeding and have a nursing baby under one year old. Please call 664-5464 for more information.

Moms Support Group – Our local WIC office has partnered with us to offer a support group for moms. This group is open to all mothers, both pregnant and postpartum. It’s a great opportunity to connect with moms in the area and share the struggles and successes of motherhood. Babies-in-arms are welcome, but the space is not suitable for older children. The group is facilitated by the WIC Breastfeeding Coordinator who is also a Certified Lactation Counselor. The class is the 4th Saturday of every month, from 2-3:30 PM, in the Northern Light Women Care Office, 50 Union Street, Suite 3200, Ellsworth.
