About This Event

Our prenatal breastfeeding class helps to ensure a smooth start for you and baby.  Board-certified lactation consultants and experienced nurses teach proper positioning, feeding frequency, how to read your baby's hunger signs, the importance of skin-to-skin contact and helpful hints to promote a successful breastfeeding experience.

Please consider registering for our Childbirth Preparation class to develop an understanding of the labor and birth process and our Newborn Essentials class which addresses the first six weeks of your newborn’s life.

Please only register one attendee. Partners are welcome and encouraged to attend. You do not need to register them.

 Classes will be held in OB classrooms A & B on Pratt 2 unless noted otherwise.

Please check your junk mail folder if you do not receive an email confirmation within one hour of registering.
