Breastfeeding 101 Workshop at A Mother's Haven Boutique & Educational Center

While we all know how healthy breastfeeding is, it doesn't always come naturally or easily for mom &baby. Because many of us were not breastfed and we didn't grow up watching women nurse their babies, it is a topic and skill that we must learn as soon-to-be parents. Proper positioning and latch-on are essential for successful nursing. Learning prenatally how your body produces milk and practicing proper nursing techniques are the first steps to successfully breastfeeding your baby.

In this prenatal class you will:
* Learn about the anatomy and physiology of breastmilk production
* Learn and practice proper positioning and latch-on
* Learn how often a typical newborn will nurse
* Learn strategies to use if problems arise and when to seek help
* Discuss strategies for working, pumping, and breastfeeding

This 3 hour workshop is held once a month on a Saturday afternoon from 2-5 pm. The next classes will be held on December 15th, January 12th, and February 9th.

Class size is limited to 6 couples. This small group size allows you to get your specific questions answered and the teacher to personalize the class to the couples' needs. Handouts and materials are provided. It's best to register for a class date that is at least one month before your due date, just in case baby comes early!

Pre--registration required. You can register by calling us at 818-380-3111 or signing up online on the Breastfeeding 101 registration page. Feel free to call us with any questions!

And for after baby is born, we also have lactation consultants who can come to your home. As well as our Breastfeeding Support Group on Tuesdays at 10am - only $10 drop-in!
