Taught by a facilitator with IBCLC experience, this co-ed class is the place to learn how to make breastfeeding successful.

Getting off to a good start is so important. Class topics include detailed information on the benefits and process of breastfeeding, potential problems, pumping and milk collection and storage. Discussion and practice of latching and positioning is very hands-on!

Dad or support partner is encouraged to attend and won't be left out. There is information just for you too!
