Depending on COVID-19 restrictions, this class MAY be moved to a virtual format through Microsoft Teams. If that change is needed, participants will be emailed a link at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled class.

This class provides parents with information about breastfeeding and offers support for new breastfeeding families. One of our lactation consultants will discuss how breastfeeding is started in the hospital, what to expect the first weeks, how to handle work situations and how to pump and store milk. After taking this class, you will have the basic knowledge of correct and comfortable positioning and how to assess adequate feedings.
