Information

If you plan to breastfeed your baby, we encourage you to register for this two- hour Breastfeeding class. You will discuss essential information on how your body produces milk, what an effective latch looks like, how to know if your baby is feeding well, the basics of expressing your milk, what to expect during the beginning of your breastfeeding journey, and what support resources are available once you've been discharged from the hospital. 

Our Lactation Services team encourages you to bring your support person with you to the Breastfeeding Class. A supportive partner positively impacts breastfeeding success and should learn about the breastfeeding process along side of you. 

Breastfeeding Classes are held at Iowa Methodist Medical Center and Methodist West Hospital. Please take note of which location you've registered for. 

Registration must be completed online. Click on the Register Now button above to register for an upcoming class. If you've already registered and need to cancel your registration, please call 515-241-6763.

Class may be canceled due to low enrollment, inclement weather, or other unforeseen circumstance. If this should happen, you will be notified by e-mail and/or a phone call and given the opportunity to register for the next available class.
