March 5, 2014

Time:

6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Description:

​This prenatal class offers practical information and tips to help you get breastfeeding off to a great start! Learn how to latch and position baby to the breast, establish an abundant milk supply, and avoid or treat common breastfeeding issues. Taught by a lactation consultant, this program focuses on the first days and weeks of feeding, the importance of skin-to-skin contact and rooming-in at the hospital, and learning to understand your baby’s hunger cues. Breast pumps, pumping and storage of breast milk will also be covered. Expectant moms and dads tell us they leave this class feeling more confident in their ability to nourish their newborn and to make informed feeding choices. This onetime class may be taken after the fifth month of pregnancy. A breastfeeding book is available for purchase.
