Lawton Breastfeeding Support Group

This event has passed.

Description

The Comanche County Health Department will host a Breastfeeding Support Group. First Wednesday and third Friday of the month. Breastfeeding comes naturally for some mothers, but for many others, it can be difficult. The challenges of breastfeeding can induce frustration and stress, and stress can directly impact breastfeeding and decrease milk supply. Challenges of breastfeeding include having difficulty getting your baby to latch, milk supply issues, worry that your baby isn’t getting enough to eat, nipple pain and the time and dedication it takes. Now, mix all of that with the hormonal changes experienced after birth and a major life-changing event. To prevent stress related to breastfeeding, it is important to educate yourself before your baby is born and to have a good support system in place. Comanche County Health Department offers a breastfeeding support group, peer counseling, breastfeeding classes, resources and lactation consultants. Breastfeeding is work, but our peer counselors say it is worth it. There is a financial benefit, but more importantly, great health benefits for a lifetime for both mom and baby. Call for more information: (580) 585-6625.
