Plan on spending awhile at this space if breastfeeding is in your baby's future! Here's a list of the activities and demos put on by the fabulous breastfeeding educators from MilkWorks O.

PUMPS: Learn all about breast pumps! From personal use to medical need, different brands/types, how to get one through your insurance – we have the answers!

Packets of paperwork will be provided so you can easily get your breast pump at MIlkWorks O – we can most likely file with your insurance directly. 

NURSING BRAS: Is it okay to wear underwire while breastfeeding? When is a good time to buy a nursing bra? How many nursing bras do I need? We hear questions like this often & have a great selection of nursing bras at MilkWorks O. We’ll focus on types, when to buy what, what to look for, how nursing bras should fit...Bonus, every staff member is a certified bra fitter trained on correctly measuring to help guide you through this process.

BREASTFEEDING SUPPLIES – YES OR NO?: This section will focus on all of the things that a mom actually NEEDS to breastfeed, which is most likely very little! It’s meant to inform you that you CAN breastfeed without feeling like you need every single gadget.  

ACCESSORIES: We are completely stocked with breastfeeding a/pumping accessories at MilkWorks O! We’ll have a basket of accessories, along with a handout discussing what they are used for and how they are generally not necessary but can be convenient.
