Baby Café expands in Birmingham

For an expectant or nursing mother, it can be lonely sometimes. Questions might arise, and having someone to talk to can make a world of difference. St. Vincent’s Health System offers a unique experience called Baby Café, just for these mothers to find answers to their questions.

“Baby Café is a wonderful program for expectant and nursing moms to have the opportunity to spend time asking questions and receiving support from our certified lactation consultants and a network of other women who are in a similar stage of nursing and parenting,” said Sandy King, RN, IBCLC, Monogram Maternity Lead with St. Vincent’s Health System. “It’s a relaxing environment that equips women with the resources they need to be confident in their breastfeeding journey. We are thrilled to expand our services to provide this resource to more moms in more communities.”
