About Breastfeeding Education
Classes are designed with family wellness in mind. Classes are held in a group setting where mothers and their partners are both welcome. All mothers taking the class are encouraged to bring a support person (father, family member, nanny, doula, etc), but plenty of mothers come by themselves.
Breastfeeding 101: This class covers everything a family needs to know about breastfeeding and normal infant behavior from birth to 6 weeks. We discuss a birth plan that supports breastfeeding, breastfeeding after a surgical delivery, how to develop a long-term full milk supply, feeding positions and cues, infant behavior, and life with a new baby. The class has specific information for partner support and tips for first time fathers. ~ 3 hours, $50
Pumping Essentials: This class is designed for mothers who will provide pumped milk to an infant care provider. Here you will get to see and touch real pumps, learn how they work, and explore the differences. Proper handling and storage of human milk is discussed as well as proper bottle feeding technique. Mothers are encouraged to bring their partner or care provider. ~ 1.5 hours, $45
Baby Care Basics: This interactive class will teach you all the baby basics: soothe, swaddle, bathe, feed, diaper, and more. We will discuss evidence-based information about newborn feeding and sleep patterns as well as the most recent guidelines for infant safety in car seats. This class also includes a hand-on introduction to baby carriers and modern cloth diapers. This class is perfect for first time parents, or parents with older children who want a refresher and/or need the newest recommendations and guidelines. 2 hrs, $45
About Mother to Mother Support
Numerous studies show that peer support is one of the greatest predictors for breastfeeding mothers in meeting their goals, whatever those goals may be. This group supports breastfeeding families of all kinds: exclusive breastfeeding, breast and formula combo feeding, complimentary feeding, full term and toddler nursing, pumping moms, and everything in between. This group gives families a safe space to share their experiences from preconception to weaning and beyond. Mothers who are having breastfeeding concerns can have questions answered by the group. This group is also a great place to get first hand recommendations on services in our community for family wellness. Pregnant women are encouraged to attend as well. A trained LC will be present to moderate.
