If you want to breastfeed your baby, but aren’t quite sure where to begin, this class is especially for you.

You’re unsure how often to feed your baby throughout the day and night.
You’re not sure how to tell if your baby is getting enough milk.
You want to learn how to tell if breastfeeding is going well, and signs it’s time to get help.
You feel nervous about breastfeeding or would like to grow your confidence.

Have Any Questions?
When in my pregnancy should I take this class?
You can take this class at any point during your pregnancy. Taking it in the second trimester is an ideal time, and you can always brush up against closer to your due date if you want a refresher.
Can I take the class with my partner/spouse/support person?
YES! Studies show that partner and family participation is one of the most important factors for breastfeeding success. We’ve heard from our customers that watching the class together allows both parents to feel inspired, excited, and on the same page about breastfeeding.
I'm not sure I want to breastfeed. Should I still take this class?
We support you in making any decision that is right for you and your family. Our class is geared towards mothers who are interested in breastfeeding. However, we’ve heard from customers who were unsure if they wanted to breastfeed. They reported that this class helped them feel better prepared if they did choose to breastfeed their baby, and in some cases, it inspired them to try it.
I'm pregnant with twins. Can I take this class?
Absolutely! This class teaches the fundamentals of breastfeeding that apply to both singles and multiples. However, you should also reach out to an IBCLC for personalized support.
