Breastfeeding Prep Classes

Breastfeeding classes are held every month. If you really want to learn about breastfeeding before your baby’s birth this is the way to do it!  This might be your first baby or maybe breastfeeding was difficult before and you want to know what went wrong…

Coming to the class will build your confidence and you will no longer feel that breastfeeding is such a difficult thing to do. List of topics covered below and everyone attending has the opportunity to ask private questions too.
