According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, breastfeeding exclusively for the first six months gives babies the best possible nutrition. Our instructor will explain breastfeeding’s benefits, demonstrate various feeding positions, give tips on pumping and storing breast milk, talk about challenges you may encounter, and provide information about available community support and resources. Expectant moms and their partners are both encouraged to attend.
This class is offered one Saturday a month in the hospital library, usually on the first of the month. Please register around your 24th week of pregnancy (registration required).
