Area Breastfeeding Support Group Meetings and Consultants
Last Updated on %s 08 January 2017
The following lactation support group and lactation consultant list was compiled with the help of a list from the Greater Kansas City Lactation Consultant Association.
We do not recommend one over the other, but hope that you can find one that suits your needs. For questions specific to any group, please use the contact information provided. We are not affiliated with these consultants, but are sharing the information about them to encourage and assist breastfeeding in any way we can.
Support groups generally are free and open to pregnant and postpartum mothers and babies. Outpatient services vary in cost, but can provide an individualized approach to more complex breastfeeding concerns. If you have questions regarding cost, please call the numbers listed below.
These times and locations of support groups are subject to vary. Please call ahead to verify before attending a group. Please let us know of changes so we can keep this page up to date.
