Lake Regional Announces Support Group for Breast-Feeding Moms

Area women who are breast-feeding are invited to participate in a new networking and support group offered by Lake Regional Health System in Osage Beach.

“MOMS: Mother’s Own Milk” is open to women who are breast-feeding, as well as women who are pregnant and want to learn about the benefits of breast-feeding. The group meets 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. the first, third and fifth Wednesday of each month in the hospital’s third floor conference rooms, beginning Nov. 7.

“Our goal is to provide education and support for mothers,” said Lake Regional Lactation Consultant Annie Havner, R.N., IBCLC, who facilitates the support group. “This group has an open forum setting where you can ask anything. It’s also a great way to meet other moms in our community.”

The group is open to all women who are interested, including individuals who did not deliver at Lake Regional.
