The Women and Infants Center at Stony Brook is currently participating in a quality improvement program called Best Fed Beginnings. Our goal in participating in this program is to achieve Baby Friendly designation through our efforts to improve maternal –infant health care. In keeping with this goal we have established a Breastfeeding Support Group open to all mothers delivered at Stony Brook.
Our Mission is to provide a safe and private place in the community where women can come to receive education and support in breastfeeding from a certified lactation counselor or consultant.
Nursing/pumping parents and their infants are welcome. To ensure their comfort and modesty, we ask that only those who are nursing/pumping stay for the session.
We welcome all individuals regardless of their gender identity, expression or sexual orientation. All conversations are confidential.
Please inform all prenatal and postpartum women about this group.
