Infant Feeding Sessions
Designated as the 3rd Baby-Friendly birth facility in Mississippi, we take great pride in educating our patients and community about the benefits of breastfeeding.
Breastfeeding can be both rewarding and challenging. Learning the basics puts you and your baby on the path to success. As a Baby-Friendly hospital, we have policies and care practices that meet the gold standard for mother/ baby care practices related to breastfeeding. We are dedicated to providing breastfeeding education and support to help you and your new baby get off to the best start.
This Infant Feeding Session is a drop-in for pregnant and breastfeeding moms and families. We encourage you to join us for refreshments, information, and support in an open, group setting.
