Breastfeeding is a special time for mother and child. Like any new skill, breastfeeding will be more successful with early preparation and practice. This class will help you feel ready to begin this important relationship. All classes are taught by nurses who are Lactation Consultants. This class meets for two consecutive weeks. Your partner is encouraged to attend with you.
Week 1- Learn what to expect in the first days of breastfeeding your newborn. This class will help you feel mre confident with the skills needed to begin your breastfeeding experience.
Week 2- Many new mothers are concerned about breastfeeding after leaving the hospital. This class will address the most common fears and challenges about breastfeeding during the first few weeks, months and beyond. We will build on the skills learned in week 1.
If you select a 9:00am-12:00pm class, all information from week one and week two will be covered in one class.
