While more than 85 percent of Yakima moms choose to breastfeed their infant, less than half end up reaching their breastfeeding goals. Simply knowing you’re not alone can make all the difference.

Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic (YVFWC) is hosting a drop-in breastfeeding, bilingual support group and moms are welcome to join if they have questions or just want to meet other breastfeeding moms.

The group was formed to help give moms support in their breastfeeding journey. Moms are welcome to stop by each Tuesday, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at YVFWC’s Programs Office at the Fiesta Foods Plaza, at 1112 East Nob Hill Blvd, Suite 1, in Yakima.

“We aim to build lasting, supportive relationships between families while discussing common questions for breastfeeding moms,” Elida Leonard, Certified Lactation Educator, said.
