Breastfeeding Moms

The Knox Breastfriends Group is a support group for breastfeeding mothers and their babies. The group meets on the third Thursday of the month at 10:30 a.m. in the outside pavilion at Ijams Nature Center, located at 2915 Island Home Avenue; and the first Monday of the month at 6 p.m. in the upstairs lobby at Lisa Ross Birth & Women's Center, 1925 Ailor Avenue.

Come join the group for songs, smiles, and light snacks as breastfeeding mothers support each other through discussion, special speakers and lively conversation concerning breastfeeding topics. Older children are welcome, with supervision, along with the very small participants!

For more information about the group, contact Robin Ferguson, WIC Breastfeeding Coordinator at 215-5060 or robin.ferguson@knoxcounty.org
