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 www.themagicalhour.com
