Disclaimer: Breastfeeding Support Groups facilitated by Marks Lactation Support is 

 Parent-to-Parent support, specific to lactating parents and their infant(s).  A scale is available for participant’s use. It is participant’s choice to record information on the group sign-in.  Conversation regarding all things breastfeeding and parenting is shared, in confidence, and it is expected that participants respect each other’s confidentiality.  Although Facilitator will apply their knowledge of breastfeeding when speaking with participants, these interactions cannot replace Lactation Consultations, and, as such, advice gained through the support group activity should not be relied upon other than as general advice. Each parent and child clients have their own idiosyncratic

issues which can only be truly tailored to each client group through one on one Lactation Consultations.
