Pregnant women, new mothers and their families often have questions about breastfeeding, or need help in getting started. The Breastfeeding Support Services program offers telephone counseling for families with questions, as well as information on breastfeeding-related services and suppliers in Lexington and around Central Kentucky. Extra services are available to families participating in the WIC program. For more information, call (859) 288-2348.
We offer a free Breastfeeding Basics Class for expecting parents. The class covers how to breastfeed, knowing baby gets enough, and pumps and supplies. The class is the third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Babies ‘R Us in the Hamburg Shopping Center. Go to our event calendar to find upcoming class.
