Welcome to the Amherst Chapter of Nursing Mothers’ Council!

Are you pregnant or currently breastfeeding? All new and experienced mothers are invited to come and support one another at a Nursing Mothers’ Gathering. An accredited Counselor will be present to facilitate discussion and provide evidence-based information. The topics are based on the needs and interests of attendees. Meetings are facilitated by Nursing Mothers’ Counselors.

We are here to offer breastfeeding help through local meetings and free phone support by accredited counselors. Women from all communities are welcome at our meetings, with their children, of course!
