If you are planning to breastfeed or you have questions about breastfeeding, this is the class for you. You will have the opportunity to meet other expectant moms, learn about breastfeeding, and gain confidence. The class will last about two hours with instruction from Carol Owings, IBCLC. Some of the topics covered include prenatal and postnatal breast changes, things that can affect the success of breastfeeding, how to prevent engorgement and other complications of breastfeeding, what to expect the first few days of life and the periods following, and techniques for good positioning of baby at the breast. The $15 registration of this class includes a breastfeeding educational book. We also offer a Breastfeeding Support Group that the hospital hosts twice a month.
