Prenatal breastfeeding education is an important step in preparing for your new baby. Many parents have heard how difficult or painful breastfeeding can be. Learning proper latch techniques and basic management skills before baby arrives can help get breastfeeding off to a good start. Using educational materials and an interactive open question approach, the prenatal breastfeeding class covers a range of areas including:

  • Proper latch and positioning
  • Feeding frequency
  • Timing of feeds
  • How can I tell if baby is getting enough milk?
  • Milk supply
  • Two breasts or one?
  • Pumping
  • Milk storage guidelines
  • Diet and breastfeeding
  • Medications and breastfeeding
  • Bed sharing, is it safe?
  • Sleep training, does it work?
  • Swaddling
  • Introducing Solids
  • Weaning
  • Resources and support

Classes last approximately 2 hours and are offered in a group setting or in the privacy of your own home. Partners are strongly encouraged to attend. The fee for a prenatal class is $300 in person, $250 for virtual
