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.
There is no fee to attend this class! Please register yourself and one support person. If you wish to bring more than one person, please register them separately.
This class has been switched to an ONLINE class instead of in person related to the COVID-19 restrictions. Enjoy the class while sitting on your couch. Please have a stuffed animal or doll available to practice the breastfeeding positions.
