Breastfeeding Preparation Class- Saint Joseph Medical Center

Producing breast milk is natural, yet the art of latching the baby onto the breast is learned.

This class will cover everything you need to know about getting started and overcoming common problems during breastfeeding. The class is taught by a Certified Lactation Educator who will provide clear and accurate breastfeeding information for the soon-to-be new mother (partners are also encouraged to attend).

We answer all your questions, including the all-important one: How do I know my baby is getting enough?

Parents will learn:

How milk is produced
Advantages of human milk over supplementation
How to get started breastfeeding after delivery
Common problems & solutions
Tips for partner feedings
Maternal diet considerations
Various positions for breastfeeding your baby

Positions will be demonstrated and practiced.
