Provides parents with information about breastfeeding and offers positive support for new breastfeeding families.
Fathers and grandmothers are encouraged to attend to learn what breastfeeding is like and what to expect. Breastfeeding is most successful with positive support.
You'll discuss how breastfeeding is initiated in the hospital, what to expect in those first weeks, handling working situations, and pumping and storing milk. We'll recommend some great books about breastfeeding that you can read during your pregnancy.
When you leave class, you'll have the basic knowledge of correct and comfortable positioning and how to assess adequate feeding.
