Breastfeeding 101 Class
Breastfeeding is a learned art for mother and baby. Our certified lactation counselors or IBCLC’s will teach you the key elements to get breastfeeding off to the very best start. We’ll begin by separating fact and fiction as we discuss the health benefits for mother and baby.
Other topics include:
- Babies feeding cues
- Proper latch and position
- How long and how often to feed
- Signs that baby is getting enough
- Breastfeeding for working mothers
There will be plenty of time for questions and answers. Since family support is so important, we strongly encourage dad, grandmother or another support person to attend at no additional charge.
Expectant parents are encouraged to register for classes early, as space is limited.
