This class is recommended by the hospital Board Certified Lactation Consultants for any mother wanting to breastfeed her newborn. Taught by an RN specially trained in lactation counseling or an IBCLC, you will learn about breastfeeding for the first 2 to 4 weeks after the baby is born. Some of the topics covered include- importance of a proper latch, how often should a newborn nurse, how can you determine if things are going well, when and where to call for breastfeeding assistance. Information about how your milk supply is made, preventing and treating sore nipples, signs and symptoms of mastitis, plugged ducts as well as other concerns you should be aware of are also covered. The class will help build your awareness of what to expect as a new mom and increase your confidence about breastfeeding your baby. Support persons should attend this class with mom. Moms are asked to bring a doll or teddy bear for the hands on part of the class discussing how to hold your newborn while nursing. 

*All are welcome to come with mother.
