Who? Pregnant and breastfeeding moms

What? Peer support, connection with other moms, accurate information about various breastfeeding topics, encouragement and the opportunity to support others

When? Third Wednesday each month 10:00 – 11:30 am (Starting October 15th)

Where? Invermere Public Library – Children’s Corner

Why? Breastfeeding peer support has been found to make a huge difference for breastfeeding families. Families who have this type of support breastfeed longer, achieving more of their breastfeeding goals. Oh, and it’s great to meet other moms who are on a similar journey.

This program is made possible by Columbia Basin Trust, RDEK, Community Connections Society of SE BC, Over The Rainbow Family Services, and the Invermere Public Library
