Breastfeeding Classes

 

Dinner for Two: How to breastfeed your baby

This class is for moms and their partners who are considering breastfeeding or who have already decided to breastfeed their baby. The class is held in the evening once a month. 

"Dinner for Two" covers how to get off to a good start, preventing problems, maternal diet, returning to work, pumping and weaning. Expectant moms should bring their partner with them, as well as anyone else who will be helping with the baby the first couple of weeks at home.
