As research confirms, the benefits of breastfeeding for both mothers and babies, more women are choosing to breastfeed.  Two of the keys for successful breastfeeding are education and support.  To help you get the best start possible, the course will include both an introduction to the basics of breastfeeding and resources for ongoing support.  Your partner is encouraged to attend, as well as others who will support you after your baby is born.

Topics include:

  • Preparation and suggested supplies
  • Care for the mother including nutrition and exercise
  • Nursing your baby - How soon?  How often?  How long?
  • Easy ways to avoid common breastfeeding problems
  • How partners and others can help
  • Returning to work

There is no fee to attend this class! 

This class is an Online class and will Not meet in person.  Enjoy the class while sitting on your couch.  Please have a stuffed animal, doll or pillow available to practice the breastfeeding positions during the class.  We encourage your support person to watch the class with you if able.
