Melrose-Wakefield Hospital Baby Café

Come join us at the first Baby Café in the United States. Located at Melrose Church of the Nazarene, 2 Short St. in Melrose, the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital Baby Café is a free service available to all pregnant and breastfeeding mothers who are interested in the health and wellness benefits of breastfeeding.

In affiliation with the UK-based Baby Café Charitable Trust, the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital Baby Café provides pregnant and breastfeeding mothers a friendly and comfortable environment to learn more about breastfeeding. In the Baby Café, mothers can relax, share tips and techniques, and socialize with other moms. One-on-one help from specially trained health professionals is available, including professional lactation support and WIC peer counselors. Babies can be also weighed and breastfeeding assessed at the Baby Café, providing additional support for parents.

No appointment is necessary to visit the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital Baby Café. For more information about the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital Baby Café or the Malden WIC Baby Cafe, please call (781) 979-MILK (6455).
