"Imagine that the world had invented a new 'dream product' to feed and immunize everyone born on earth. Imagine also that it was available everywhere, required no storage and delivery, and helped mothers plan their families and reduce their risk of cancer. This 'dream product' is not a dream at all. It is human breast milk, and it is available to us all at birth." -UNICEF

This class is designed for expectant mothers who plan to breastfeed and their partners. Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, are preparing to return to work, or thinking about expressing breast milk for an occasional bottle, this class will help you get started. Topics include: establishing and maintaining an abundant milk supply, how to latch and position baby at the breast, introducing a bottle, how to avoid common problems, how to choose the right breast pump and accessories, and returning to work while breastfeeding. We encourage partners to attend with expecting mothers!

When to take this class: During your seventh or eighth month of pregnancy.
