Class: Breastfeeding Preparation

This one-time class is valuable to those who plan to breastfeed their babies. Designed for the breastfeeding woman and her partner, we provide a positive and safe setting to talk about breastfeeding concerns and its impact on the entire family. In addition to a review of the anatomy and physiology of breastfeeding (lactation), the class explores current techniques and preparations that foster successful breastfeeding. This includes learning and practicing different nursing positions, proper collection and storage of breast milk, and the latest information on breast pumps.

New Baby Breastfeeding Support Group for Breastfeeding Moms

The New Baby Breastfeeding Support Group is offered to breastfeeding moms every Wednesday for mom and baby up to 8 weeks old. In this group setting, moms have the opportunity to meet with a lactation consultant, receive reassurance and ask questions. Because we want to be available to spend time with you and your new baby during our support group, we will only provide one weight check upon request.

New Baby Breastfeeding Support Group is offered at no charge every Wednesday at 10 a.m. in the second floor conference center. Please call 1-866-7SWEDISH or Register Online
