We offer a number of resources for our class participants including access to breast pumps and accessories for new and expectant mothers.
Breastfeeding offers many benefits for your baby (and you!) including skin-to-skin contact for better bonding. This prenatal breastfeeding class will help you get off to the best start. You will learn about the many benefits of breastfeeding, ways to read your baby’s hunger signs, a variety of breastfeeding positions, steps to achieve a correct latch-on for your baby, methods to troubleshoot potential challenges and how to find a lactation consultant for ongoing breastfeeding support. Learning these techniques prenatally, in a relaxed environment, allows for easier retention of information and prepares you for hands-on breastfeeding practice after the delivery, with the help of your nurse or lactation consultant.
One day class (2.5 hours)
You should complete your classes by about 1 month before your due date (earlier for twins). On the day of class, bring a pen, water and snacks.
