If you plan to breastfeed your baby we encourage you to register for this two hour Breastfeeding class. The class covers essential information on how your body makes milk, what an effective latch looks like, how to know if you baby is feeding well, the basics of expressing your milk, what to expect during the beginning and what support resources are available after you've been discharged. We encourage support people to attend this class to help mom get off to the best start.
