Breastfeeding Support Groups
At Bon Secours, we believe that breastfeeding helps build a lasting bond between mother and child. Breastfeeding isn't just a lifestyle choice, it's a health practice that's been shown to protect babies against ear infections, lower the mother's risk of breast cancer, and help moms lose pregnancy weight.
