Breastfeeding Moms in NL Facebook Support

Breastfeeding Moms in NL welcomes breastfeeding mothers (and supporters) living in (or from) Newfoundland and Labrador. The goal of this Facebook group is to provide mother-to-mother support so that moms are better able to reach their breastfeeding goals. The group is administered by accredited peer breastfeeding supporters and other experienced nursing moms. It is a “closed group,” meaning what is posted here will not show up on your personal Facebook Timeline or in your friends’ newsfeeds. (Your posts will, however, be viewable by anyone who is also a member of this group.)
