Basics of Breastfeeding 1 - Virtual: Birth to Home (5/15/24)

Live Virtual Class

During Basics of Breastfeeding 1 - Virtual, the instructor will prepare you to breastfeed in the days and weeks after your baby is born. You will learn how milk is made, what your baby's feeding cues are, how and when to latch your baby to the breast and how to make breastfeeding comfortable. This class will also discuss common problems.

An experienced breastfeeding educator will meet with you virtually for this one evening session. During class, you can talk to an expert who can answer your questions in real time.

In addition, students of this course will receive an InJoy app card titled "Understanding Breastfeeding". The information found here is available to you for 18 months, but we highly recommend looking it over before class starts.
