Breastfeeding Preparation Class (English)
Maternal Child Health Education Classes

Our free Breastfeeding Preparation class is designed so you can feel completely comfortable feeding your newborn while you are in our Maternity unit and after you take your baby home. As a designated "Baby Friendly Hospital" by Baby-Friendly USA, we believe breastfeeding is the healthiest way for you to feed your baby and recognize the important health benefits it gives you and your child. Our Certified Lactation Consultants will demonstrate breastfeeding techniques in a relaxed, safe environment, provide instruction on how to get help if you need it, and answer your questions about successfully breastfeeding your baby.

Special instructions: This class is for English-speaking adults, recommended for expecting mothers. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before the class starts to verify registration. You do not need to bring anything. Valet parking is available and validation provided (enter on Vanowen Street.)
