Breastfeeding Basics Class

This class fun and informative class is ideal for those planning to breastfeed for the first time, for those who had a less-than-optimal experience with breastfeeding in the past, or those who just want a refresher. Breastfeeding preparation and confidence can make a big difference in overall success.  

This class can be taken anytime in the second half of pregnancy, however later pregnancy (after 32 weeks gestation) is the ideal time.

You will gain useful information, answers to your questions, and tools to succeed! Content will be taught through discussion, hands-on demonstration with dolls, videos, and written materials.  The private class gives plenty of opportunity for addressing your specific questions and concerns in a non-judgmental atmosphere.

Some topics covered include:

  • Busting myths

  • Preparing to breastfeed

  • The first hours after birth

  • Breastfeeding positions
