During this program you will learn breastfeeding techniques to get you off to a good start, steps for successful breastfeeding, and information for coping with common situations or problems that can occur in the early weeks. The father of the baby or a supportive family member is encouraged to attend. We recommend that you take this class approximately two to three months before delivery.
Please bring a life-size doll or stuffed animal so that you can practice positioning techniques as they are demonstrated during class.
