The breastfeeding support group is a place to receive advice, support and a place for new moms to gather. Sherry Green, RN has been a nurse for more than 15 years and will be able to answer your questions and help both you and your baby get better at breastfeeding.
We offer a support group for anyone that is looking at weight loss surgery, or has had weight loss surgery before. Everyone is welcome whether you had your surgery at WVMC or at another facility. We will have our program psychologist at each meeting and cover an array of topics. It is a safe, discrete place to gather information and talk to others. If you have any questions, please call Ellen Plaia, program coordinator at 503-434-6060.
If you are considering weight loss surgery, we encourage you to attend a free informational weight-loss session. These sessions will give you an opportunity to get to know our board certified bariatric surgeon and the rest of the team you will be accompanying you on your journey to a new life free from the weight. If you have any questions about the session, or any other questions about weight loss surgery, please call Ellen Plaia at 503-434-6060.
Have you had Bariatric surgery and looking for a little support? Join our group lead by a Registered Dietitian, Lindsay Obermeyer. Our group meets weekly in the Willamette Valley Medical Center Classrooms on the first floor across from the cafeteria. We discuss everything from diet and recipe ideas, grocery shopping and eating out tips, to society pressures and internal struggles. It is a warm, inviting group that has one mission: to support one another through the good and the bad obstacles of weight loss surgery in order to succeed. We hope you will join us!
