Groups


Susan Howard, RN, IBCLC is delighted to moderate two FREE support groups at Virginia Hospital Center (VHC).  The two groups she moderates are The Breastfeeding Support Group, which meets twice a week, and The Working Moms Group, which typically meets on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month at 7pm.

Things to consider
Are you interested in meeting with Susan for a 1:1 consultation for you and your baby, but would like to get to know her beforehand?  Attending one of the groups provides a great opportunity to get a glimpse of her knowledge in action!  

Please note, Susan can solve a lot of breastfeeding challenges in a group setting, but the support groups are usually not  "hands-on" forums. If you need more in-depth help or prefer an in-person consult,  contact us to set up a home visit. Groups can be a little chaotic, so please take a moment to introduce yourself!

How to get there
If you are on a driving restriction, you can be dropped off at the Women and Infant Entrance.  If you are driving, park in the Garage C (formerly Green garage) and follow the sidewalk to the Women and Infant Entrance.  There is complimentary valet parking in the Garage A (formerly Blue garage). Metered parking is also available on the side streets. Allow for 2 hours.

Groups are held directly across from the information desk in the Lobby Classroom. You might see a gaggle of strollers in the alcove. If you are running late, no worries. Just join whenever you arrive!
