NORWAY – Meeting Other Moms gatherings’ summer schedule will be the second Thursday of each month: June 10, July 8 and Aug. 12 at the Fare Share Commons, 443 Main St. A $1 donation is requested for the use of the space.

Moms, babies, siblings, expectant moms and their family and friends are welcome to attend and talk about mothering concerns and celebrations. The meetings provide mothers with safe space and positive role models to help develop self-confidence as women and mothers, and expand their parenting skills. Breastfeeding is a natural process, but it is not instinctive. Meeting other moms who are breastfeeding can be helpful and reassuring.

The meetings are facilitated by Marty Elkin, RN, who is a certified lactation consultant with many years of experience as an educator for maternity for student nurses. She has been assisting mothers and babies with breastfeeding for many years. She has been providing lactation services independently since January 2003.

The gatherings will follow a weekly schedule beginning Sept. 9 and continuing through May 28.
