Caring for Women
Midwifery of Manhattan is proud to announce the birth of our new weekly Breastfeeding and Newborn Support Group
"I went to the group and was met with unbelievable kindness and compassion.
Living in New York as a new mother can be isolating, but this created a loving and supportive community."
