Area women who are breast-feeding are invited to participate in a networking and support group offered by Lake Regional Health System in Osage Beach.
“Take Five: Amazing MOMS” 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 Wednesday of each month in the hospital’s first floor coffee shop near the Emergency Department entrance.
The group is facilitated by Lactation Consultant Annie Havner, R.N., IBCLC.
“Our new time and location provides a relaxed environment to give busy moms a break,” Havner said. “This group has an open forum setting where you can ask anything, and weigh your baby to make sure they are getting the nutrition they need. 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.
