What is Mother's Milk Club?
When it comes to a mother’s breastfeeding journey, sometimes the best advice and support comes from other mothers on the same journey. That’s why the Galveston County Health District (GCHD) formed Mother's Milk Club, a free breastfeeding support group.
Who can join the club?
The free club is not exclusive to WIC clients, does not require registration, and welcomes all expectant and new mothers.
What topics will be covered in the club?
Mother’s Milk Club will cover a variety of topics, including the benefits of skin-to-skin contact, the important role of dads during breastfeeding, milk supply, breastfeeding in public and most importantly, biting! New mothers are encouraged to bring their babies.
