During this virtual class, expectant parents will explore the “Understanding
Breastfeeding” Student Handbook which will be mailed to you. A Lactation
Specialist will provide you with information about the benefits of breastfeeding,
hands on demonstration of techniques for positioning your infant, how-to
ensure nutritive latch, healthy milk production, pumping success, storing
of human milk, as well as prevention and relief of common problems and
a Q&A session. Your support person is encouraged to join us. You will
be asked to use a doll or rolled blanket as your “baby” while
practicing hands on exercises as the instructor walks you through the skills.
Also, you will be provided with access to an informative
mobile app that will keep important information at your fingertips before and during
your breastfeeding journey.
