OBS Group

We created our virtual support group during the pandemic as a way to bring families together to talk about breastfeeding issues. OBS Group runs monthly on Thursdays from 12:30 to 1:30 pm on Zoom. Babies of all ages are welcome. Each month there is a choice of two breakout room discussions on popular feeding-related topics.

Register via the booking function below. We will send you a video link closer to the time by email, usually the day before, and ask that you join the meeting promptly at 12:30 pm.
