Need Breastfeeding Support?
Pre COVID-19, pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding were challenging experiences. Add in a pandemic, and you’ve got a whole new level of new-momma stress. (We know, you didn’t think that was possible. Yet, here we are.) The local nonprofit Better Beginnings has stepped in with My Navigator, a warm line that provides information and resources to new moms and moms-to-be. The program even offers free Baby Weigh Stations, where parents can bring infants for a quick weigh-in and moms can get breastfeeding advice from trained volunteers. Baby Weigh Stations are held at Bridges Pregnancy Clinic and Care Center in Santa Rosa on Mondays, 9:30–11 a.m. Appointments are necessary; call 575-9000. The My Navigator warm line is 902-3031.
