Prenatal Breastfeeding Class
Wed, 10 May 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
If you are planning to breastfeed, prepare, and you are more likely to succeed. Did you know, 80% of women who birth in our local hospital intend on nursing exclusively, however, roughly 22% are successful. We can definitely help ease the stress, and equip new mothers with proper skills and knowledge to aid in the success of breastfeeding.
Regardless of your infant feeding plans, experience or knowledge; this class is an invaluable, holistic, intensive and realistic resource. This information in this course is evidence based to allow each family to make an infant feeding plan that best suits their needs.
We will investigate the following topics through an interactive, educational and participant guided class that works to provide guided and attainable breastfeeding goals while acknowledging and avoiding common misconceptions.
