Although breastfeeding is one of the most instinctive things new moms do, it can often feel intimidating.

Babies in Bloom is a safe sanctuary where new moms can be vulnerable with their struggles with breastfeeding & find the compassionate, professional help they need to support their new baby.

At our breastfeeding center you’ll work with International Board Certified Lactation Consultants who are here to guide you through everything you need to know about breastfeeding. Our educators are gentle, compassionate, and have years of experience teaching parents about breastfeeding.

Current Classes

We also offer several breastfeeding classes. These are in a group setting and are a great way to meet other new moms and learn about breastfeeding. See our class schedule here.

Breastfeeding 101

One of the key ingredients for a successful breastfeeding experience is education! With so much information available on breastfeeding, it can feel overwhelming for parents-to-be. Learn techniques that will help you both get off to a good start and avoid common problems. Topics include latch and positioning, knowing when and how much to feed your baby, and how to know that baby is getting enough. Partners are welcome and encouraged to join you!

Lactation Lounge

Do you have questions about breastfeeding? Would you like to weigh your baby and see how he/she is growing? Would you like to meet other new mothers and babies? Join us for our Breastfeeding Support Group! This group is open to all mothers in the community and is facilitated by an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. We meet every Tuesday and Friday to provide encouragement and foster a sense of community. Registration is not required and the class is FREE.

Breastfeeding for Working Mothers: Planning, Preparing, & Pumping
