Attending breastfeeding groups in community clinics and through local organizations can be helpful while you are learning to breastfeed and adjusting to parenthood. Other breastfeeding mothers can be a great source of support. Parents can also share tips and offer encouragement. Many groups meet weekly, some are drop-in, and most request a small donation or fee to attend.
