The Nest is a nonprofit organization that serves the community of Lakeland and its surrounding areas through carefully designed programs and support groups in order to enact positive changes within local families.

EDUCATION – We offer many opportunities to inform, strengthen, and empower parents to make the decisions that are just right for their family. Our most popular classes are Prenatal Nutrition, Breastfeeding Basics, Natural Childbirth, Infant Massage, and Infant & Child CPR. We also host workshops and other informative events at our office from time to time.

LACTATION – Group and private support available. Our staff includes four Certified Breastfeeding Specialists and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). We strive to be a source of education, encouragement, and support for mothers who have chosen to provide this naturally healthy start for their children.

DOULA SERVICES – The Nest Doulas provide non-clinical educational, emotional, and physical support to women and their families during pregnancy, labor, and in the postpartum period. In this role, we share unbiased, evidence-based information and recommendations to aid women in making informed decisions about their care and that of their baby.
