Motherhood, and preparing for it, can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be! We offer a range of services that can help you reach your breastfeeding and parenting goals. We are here for you every step of the way – from before the baby comes through weaning!
We offer a variety of free and low-cost classes by Breastfeeding Outreach for Greater Washington. Our classes are taught by our experienced IBCLCs or highly qualified instructors. We are happy to say that our classes are quite popular, and our parents really enjoy them. All of our classes provide a supportive environment to not only get your breastfeeding-related questions answered but also to meet other like-minded families. We also offer a variety of classes on other topics including childbirth, infant sleep, baby care, nutrition and much more. Check our calendar for a full listing and to register.
Sometimes what you need is one-on-one support. For that, we offer prenatal, lactation, and follow-up consultations with experienced IBCLCs that can take place in office, in home or over skype. Phone consultations are also available.
Our fully stocked boutique is complete with nursing bras, nursing clothes, breastfeeding supplies, breast pumps and accessories, slings and carriers and much, much more. Our staff is highly trained and well versed in our products so that they can make your shopping simple and get you exactly what you need.
We also host several outreach programs by Breastfeeding Outreach for Greater Washington, including serving as a Milk Depot for the Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin. We shipped over 20,000 ounces of breast milk in 2014 – that’s a lot of milk for preemies and sick infants! If you’re interested in becoming a donor, please call 512-494-0800.
