Being a new mom and breastfeeding can be a real challenge. As natural as breastfeeding is, it’s not always as easy as it may seem. Being able to talk to other moms who are breastfeeding and get their support and advice can be life-changing. There are several breastfeeding support groups on the Eastern Shore available for mama’s to join and get the information and support they need. Check them out below and find the group(s) that are best for you!
