The Village Breastfeeding Support Group
Feeling isolated and yearning for some adult interaction? Have questions about breastfeeding, pumping, returning to work, or starting solids? Who doesn’t?
We have just the place for you!
What happens at the village? We share with each other, build connections, grow with each other, laugh together, nurture each other, speak our truth, share in our journey, and help each other find our way.
Our very popular mother-to-mother breastfeeding support group - The Village - is the perfect place for mothers and babies. Our mothers who attend keep coming back! You will feel empowered and supported when you leave.
WHEN: Our group meets at Compass Wellness Center at 14 Vine Street, New Britain, CT from 6:30-8:00 p.m. once a month. At this meeting our scale is always available to weigh your baby. You can also find out when we meet by following us on Facebook or Instagram.
WHO CAN COME: Everyone is welcome! Pregnant? Join us! Learning and seeing breastfeeding before you deliver is really, really helpful! As well moms breastfeeding toddlers welcome to attend as well! No need to RSVP - simply show up - it’s just that easy!
"Patrice is very helpful, down to earth, and makes you feel like you're talking to a friend! She is full of advice and explains everything really well. I would recommend her to anyone needing help or reassurance."
"Patrice was wonderful when my little one wasn't latching well and losing weight. She got me comfortable with nursing and confident in my ability to keep up with it. My little one is now 7 months + and still nursing strong! I love The Village Breastfeeding support groups so I can get support from other moms who have, or are going through, the same troubles as I am."
"Such kind and caring support! Patrice was such a great help to my little one and I. I would recommend her to any breastfeeding mamas that need a little help and encouragement."

"Patrice stayed an hour past our meeting time to answer all our questions on returning to work. Taking her class on pumping schedules is a must. You can tell she truly cares and is well informed. I learned so much!"
“Parenthood has the power to redefine every aspect of life - marriage, work, relationships with family and friends. Those helpless bundles of power and promise that come into our world show us our true selves- who we are, who we are not, who we wish we could be.”
