The Breastfeeding cafe is meant to be an event where nursing moms can get together, discuss parenting and nursing, and socialize, as well. By holding the event in a public place, it allows the public to see that nursing is a natural way to feed your baby.

The cafe will be held on the third Monday of each month, from 10-11 am. It has been added to the calendar.
