We’re Having a Baby
In this two day class, our Certified Childbirth Educators and Certified Lactation Consultants prepare you for labor & delivery, early parenting, and breastfeeding education with confidence and support. First-time and “experienced” expectant parents in the 6-8 months of pregnancy are welcome. Educational topics include prenatal nutrition, preterm labor, relaxation, labor and delivery, post-partum and newborn care, including infant CPR.
Prenatal Breastfeeding Class
Even before giving birth, you can learn the ins and outs of breastfeeding! This class will cover baby behaviors, common challenges, and effective techniques to get you and baby off to the best start. Each class is taught by one of our Certified Lactation Consultants. If you take “We’re Having a Baby,” this information is covered. It is not necessary to also take this class.
