PREP+ Peer Support Group
In 2014, we established PREP + Mom’s Breastfeeding Support Group. This peer support group consists of both an in-person group and a Facebook group. Mothers are welcome to be a part of one or both.
What does the group discuss?
This is a casual breastfeeding support group where all breastfeeding topics are discussed. To assist those mothers returning to work, we have organized the return to work discussion around 5 themes.
P : Preparation: Preparing to return to work
R : Resources: Topics for communicating with employers
E : Expression: Expressing breast milk; Pump use; Breast milk storage
P : Parenting: Breastfeeding friendly childcare principles
+ : Extra topics: General breastfeeding support; Troubleshooting workplace concerns
When and where does the group meet?
- When: First Thursday of each month from 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM
- Where: Conference room at Senders Pediatrics
- Who: Breastfeeding mothers and their infants
How else can I be a part of a support group?
Please join our Facebook group at PREP+ Working Moms Breastfeeding Peer Support Group for additional opportunities to connect with other breastfeeding mothers. Mothers are welcome to be a part of this group even if they are unable to attend the in-person support group.
