This is a one-session course that will help you to get started on the right foot with breastfeeding within minutes of delivering your baby. Whether you hope to breastfeed full-time or plan to supplement with formula part-time, this course is as informative as it is non-judgmental. Partners are highly encouraged to attend!
This class is offered online and in-person, and may be taken during pregnancy or anytime after. Online classes take place on Zoom. In-person classes take place at the Old Stone Church 251 Main Street, East Haven. Caregivers (grandparents-to-be, etc.) are welcome to attend with you via Facetime at no additional cost. Having them hear the same information from class can be helpful.
