Support Group

Join us for our new monthly Working and Breastfeeding Support Group! The Support Group is a great place to meet other moms at Penn State, to ask questions about breastfeeding or parenting, to share experiences with others, and just to relax and chat. If you are a new mom (or expecting mom!) you can find ideas and support as you work through the challenges of combining work/student life with breastfeeding and parenting. We also have a baby scale available. If you are an experienced mom, Support Group meetings are a great place to share your insights and provide some guidance to new moms!

Meetings are held monthly over the lunch hour in the HUB. For specific dates/locations, please contact The Breastfeeding Support Program at breastfeeding@psu.edu or by calling 814-867-0776. All future, current and past Penn State working/student/breastfeeding/pumping moms and children are welcome!
