A new study finds that Breastfed babies are smarter. Kennesaw Pediatrics offers a breastfeeding class to all mothers who are interested in learning more. Kennesaw Pediatrics is a strong force in the local community and works hard to enrich the lives of those that call it home. Through regular outreach and education opportunities Kennesaw Pediatrics continues to help people get a better understanding about children’s healthcare.

“The Group is a great place to talk about your breastfeeding joys and challenges in a supportive environment. It's a wonderful time to meet other moms who are nursing their babies. Pregnant women are welcome as well as any breastfeeding mom in our community regardless of which pediatric practice they use. Our practices' Lactation Consultants will be there to lead the discussion and provide accurate medical information as it relates to breastfeeding,” says Kennesaw Pediatrics Lactation Consultant Valerie Vanderlip, IBCLC, RLC.

Kennesaw Pediatrics has discovered that there is a lot of confusion about breastfeeding. Also, there is so much information available about breastfeeding that mothers can become easily overwhelmed. This class educates mothers on several aspects of breastfeeding and allows participants direct access to lactation consultants.
