Free Baby Weigh Day starts in Ferndale on March 20

Whatcom County parents can monitor their babies’ birth weight and talk to a nurse for free in Ferndale beginning Friday, March 20.

Breasts R Best Lactation Consultants and London Health Care Center announced they were launching the free Baby Weigh Day service — replacing what was offered for more than 12 years by Eden Home Care Baby before it closed its maternal/child health care unit.

“It’s a great opportunity for new moms — or anyone — to have their questions answered by a nurse and certified lactation consultant experienced in maternal/infant care and breastfeeding,” said Patty Hiestand, owner of Breasts R Best, in a news release of the weigh-ins.

The clinic will run 1-3 p.m. Fridays at London Health Care Center, 2376 Main St., Suite 3.

Appointments aren’t needed, but people should check online at breastsrbest.com under “services” or call London Health Center at 360-384-2900 for possible changes to the schedule.
