Local Support Groups
Below are some quick links to local independent support groups. The Birth Community is in the process of developing and hosting its own support groups for a variety of topics including breastfeeding, birth trauma/loss, and dads!
This online facebook group was recently started for moms in the St. Cloud area to support one another. Ask for tips, offer compassion and understanding, and lean on each other. Occasional in-person meetings are scheduled through the group.
This group meets on the 1st and 3rd Mondays and 4th Saturdays each month at For All of Maternity. It's facilitated by local lactation professionals. It is open to parents who have questions about breastfeeding (expectant or nursing). It's a great opportunity to get out of the house, connect with others, and get tips/tricks for reaching your nursing goals!
The St. Cloud La Leche League chapter meets each month
on the 4th Monday at 6:30pm at Westwood Church in St. Cloud.
