With Barbara Robertson, MA, IBCLC

As you know, breastfeeding is the very best thing you can do nurture your baby. The breastfeeding relationship combines instinct and learned skills. Our breastfeeding classes focus on the first critical weeks of your baby’s life and provide basic information and resources to prepare the mother-to-be for a satisfying breastfeeding experience. Since family support is a key factor in a positive breastfeeding experience, partners are also encouraged to attend. Topics include:

  • How you make breastmilk
  • The benefits of skin-to-skin contact
  • Reading your baby’s hunger cues
  • How often and how long to nurse
  • How to tell if your baby is getting enough breastmilk
  • The basics of latching and positioning
  • When to seek help for breastfeeding challenges
  • We always have a breastfeeding mother come to our classes. Seeing is believing!
