Berkshire Nursing Families provides education, lactation consultation, a 7 day a week breastfeeding hotline, and home visits – all of which are free of charge to every family who needs them. Because breastfeeding impacts so many aspects of family wellness – from reducing health concerns like diabetes and asthma to improving maternal-child bonding – the organization makes a powerful contribution to the well-being of our community’s families.
We are a nonprofit organization kindly supported by North Adams Regional Hospital, United Way of Northern Berkshire, the William J and Margery S Barrett Fund, the James Hardman Fund, the Women’s Exchange, local businesses, churches, private donors, and the participants of our annual Team Trivia night. For more information, call our support line at (413) 743-5338.
