Lactation experts will be there for parents to take advantage of free guidance and support.
“We have a scale so they can get free weight checks, they get support from other moms who are also going through the same experience so they can get the breastfeeding support to help them meet their goals,” said Abby Malman Case with the Mother’s Milk Bank Cafe.
The cafe will be open every Friday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Rocky Mountain Childen’s Health Foundation on Marshall Street in Arvada.
