It’s official! The San Diego Breastfeeding Center finally has a real office!
Since I started my business 3 years ago, my goal was to have a space where breastfeeding moms could receive affordable breastfeeding help and support. In addition to our in-home consultations, we began hosting a small, free weekly breastfeeding support group. I am so incredibly thankful for Monta Briant at The Baby Garten Studio, who continues to donate the space to us every week. In 2 years, this small group has grown from just a few moms to quite a packed house.
Then, this past winter, we started our Breastfeeding Support Clinic, which offered small group support to breastfeeding moms. Every Monday up to 4 moms/babies received hands-on breastfeeding help, as well as mom-to-mom support, for the affordable price of $35.
Yet, I felt that there was still a group of moms who were feeling neglected…. The moms who really needed the extra breastfeeding support, but the in-home consultation was not in their budgets. Well, I am a firm believer that NO mom should go without the support they need, breastfeeding or not! It is too difficult out there to do this alone. We need our village! We need our sisterhood! Well, you spoke and we listened!
Starting Monday, September 10, 2012, the San Diego Breastfeeding Center will open the door to our FIRST OFFICE LOCATION, where we will offer in-office lactation consultations, as well as our popular Breastfeeding Support Clinic. When breastfeeding moms come to us that means lower costs for everyone! Plus, more availability for appointments!
My goal has finally come to fruition! I can’t thank you all enough for helping me reach this goal! Without you all reaching out for support, I never would have had the courage to expand my business in this way!
