Lactation Basics Class
While breastfeeding is a natural process, it is also a learned art. Taught by a certified lactation consultant, this class offers information on how your body produces milk and how to get your milk supply off to the best possible start. We also discuss what do to if things aren’t going well. This class is helpful for parents planning to latch the baby to their breast or chest or for parents who wish to exclusively pump milk to bottle feed their baby.
This is the first class of a two-part series but can be taken alone. We strongly recommend this class for anyone who is considering using their own milk to feed their baby. This class includes videos, discussions and handouts. Partners and other support people are welcome to attend.
This class is held in the evening, 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in the Pattison Board Room, 2nd Floor, Samaritan Hospital – Tower Building. Click Register Now below to see available dates.
