In-Person Classes

Prenatal breastfeeding education sometimes feels like one more thing to do, but given that you breastfeed for 6-8 hours a day for the first few weeks, this will be one of the most tangibly helpful things you do now to prepare for baby later.

Prenatal breastfeeding education is beneficial because: 

it increases breastfeeding success and decreases nipple damage at 3 days postpartum (Gao et al., 2022)

 

it increases duration of breastfeeding (Reifsnider, E., & Elkhart, D., 1997)

 

it provides appropriate knowledge and skills to increase mothers’ self-efficacy in breastfeeding and increases breastfeeding duration (Chezem et al., 2003)

 

it improves exclusive breastfeeding rates at 4 months postpartum (Froozani et al., 1999)

 

antenatal breastfeeding education combined with postpartum support increases breastfeeding prevalence (Fairbank et al., 2000)

 

breastfeeding duration is longer as the maternal self-efficacy increases after antenatal education (Jeni et al., 2009)

I have been a lactation consultant since 2015, teaching in-person breastfeeding classes since 2020, and I can't wait to bring this new curriculum to our community.
