MotherBaby Cafe

Breastfeeding is normal! And breastfeeding can be simple, especially when mother and baby are surrounded by others who understand biological breastfeeding and know how to support the new motherbaby pair. This one-of-a-kind gathering in Des Moines is known for supporting Biological Babyhood (breastfeeding, simplified) as we like to call it.

The breastfeeding relationship begins immediately after birth, and allowing for your newborn’s nine instinctive stages can impart longterm physical and psychological benefits to both you and your child. To learn more, please visit

Our Motherbaby Nurse is present to help mothers and babies learn to breastfeed together and understand each others cues. Any mama/baby pair, whether brand new and needing support, or an older breastfeeding pair needing different advice; are welcome to come and enjoy hanging out in a comfortable, breastfeeding-friendly atmosphere and learning from others.

This support group is open to the community free of charge, and normally meets Mondays 9:30 - 11:30 AM, Wednesdays 6:00 - 8:00 PM, Thursdays 1:00 - 3:00 PM. Please check our event calendar for any schedule changes. No registration is required for drop-in hours.
