Expecting a baby?!

Who is The Breastfeeding Class for?
🌈 This welcoming, inclusive class is for all expecting families that wants to learn more about breastfeeding, chestfeeding, or bodyfeeding. Parents who learn lactation before birth often have better outcomes and less stress. Once your newborn arrives, continued access lets you use the class as a reference if you need help along the way.
Ok, but can’t I just learn this at the hospital when I give birth?!
Newborns need to eat 10-12 times a day, starting on Day 1 of life. Hospital lactation consultants are wonderful — but you often get 10-15 minutes with them at most. And you may have to wait hours till they arrive.
With The Breastfeeding Class, you’ll learn in advance how to hold and latch a baby, how to avoid pain, how to tell if baby’s eating well, and best practices to bring in a full milk supply. 24/7/365 access means you can bring The Breastfeeding Class into your delivery room and back to your home in the early postpartum days, too.
