Pregnant and new mothers can learn about breastfeeding in a friendly and comfortable environment at the Mothers’ Milk Bank Baby Café, which will open Feb. 5 at the Jewish Community Center. The cafe will be launched with a party from 10 a.m. to noon.
In the Baby Café, mothers can drop in to relax, share tips and techniques, and socialize with other moms. One-on-one help professional lactation support is provided for no charge by certified lactation specialists, and babies are weighed before and after feeding.
“Mothers’ Milk Bank Baby Café at the Jewish Community Center will offer a space where parents can come and get free breastfeeding guidance and support from a lactation specialist,” Abby Malman Case, international board-certified lactation consultant and manager of donor relations at Mothers’ Milk Bank, said in a news release. “Lactation support can often be very expensive, and we want to help all parents meet their breastfeeding goals.”
The grand opening is open to the public and will offer refreshments, music for the infants, and a raffle.
The special event coincides with the week of Tu Bishvat. In the Jewish tradition, Tu Bishvat is the “new year of the trees” and it is customary to plant trees in celebration of this holiday. In the spirit of Tu Bishvat, the Jewish community will plant a tree and planting seeds will be available for guests to take home.
After Feb. 5, Baby Café at Jewish Community Center will be open from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesdays at 350 S. Dahlia St. in Denver. Everything will be free including the weight checks for babies.
