Nothing is more natural than breastfeeding, but that doesn’t mean it is always easy. That is why we provide all of our expectant parents with information before issues arise.
Our breastfeeding class is a two and a half hour class offered to help encourage and instruct expectant parents so that they will have a successful and enjoyable start into nursing. The class includes a copy of Ina May Gaskin’s Breastfeeding Book.
We will discuss:
- Physiology of breastfeeding
- The biological specificity of breastmilk
- Specific instructions and mechanics of a correct latch
- Avoiding common pitfalls
- How to choose a breast pump
- How to build a sufficient milk supply
- Video instructions
When: Offered every several weeks
Who: Expectant parents
Where: The Women’s Wellness Classroom at Patriot’s Plaza [directions]
We also offer lactation counseling after the birth of for any specific nursing concerns that a new mother may be experiencing.
