Breastfeeding Class

Classes fill quickly.  We recommend registering around week 24 of your pregnancy so you are about 32 weeks pregnant when you attend class. (Earlier if you are giving birth to twins).

This is a LIVE virtual class held online through Zoom.

Breastfeeding is a natural and beneficial way to feed your baby, but it is a learned experience. This class covers the benefits of breastfeeding and how to get off to a good start breastfeeding your new baby. Special consideration is given to techniques, common early concerns, and how to successfully incorporate breastfeeding into your lifestyle.

REGISTERING ADDITIONAL ATTENDEES

The registration fee is for a single attendee and includes the cost of materials. You may add a second attendee (a birth partner or support person) at no additional charge, but there is no discount to the fee if only one person attends. The additional attendee MUST be accounted for at the time of registration in order to reserve their spot. To do this, please choose “2” next to “attendees” in the box below when you select the date of your session. You must also fill in the details of this extra person during the registration process. The maximum number of people per registration is two.

CANCELLATIONS & WAITLIST

If a registered person cannot attend, please contact us at hfarrah@emersonhosp.org so that we may make that spot available to someone else. If you would like to be added to the waitlist for a specific class, please let us know at the above email. No refunds will be given except for the birth of the child or for medical reasons.
