Prenatal Support
Prenatal breastfeeding classes are offered at no cost for pregnant women and their partners who are interested in breastfeeding their babies. This two hour class covers the benefits of breastfeeding, positions for breastfeeding, getting a good latch, pumping and special challenges.

Inpatient Support

Breastfeeding mothers will receive a visit from our lactation specialist. She will provide you with basic breastfeeding information, answering questions and assistance in getting baby to the breast if needed. Mothers may call Lactation Services directly for help during their hospital stay. All the nurses in the Family Birth Center have received breastfeeding education and can also assist breastfeeding mothers.
