Treat Our Local LC's to Ice Cream
- We invite all of our local LC's out for a free scoop of ice cream! They deserve it!
- Every year our mother's group does a walk at the zoo or a park. It actually raises money for various things surrounding breastfeeding. It might help fund a scholarship for someone to take the IBCLC exam or buy books for a local pregnancy clinic on breastfeeding (for the docs, midwives and patients).
