This Breast Feeding Class is a 1 1/2 hour class designed for pregnant women interested in breastfeeding. Partners are encouraged to attend too! Our goal is to build your foundation of knowledge, help ease your prenatal concerns, and set you on the path of breast feeding success.
Our patients often say that breastfeeding is one of the most stressful parts of the early days of parenthood. We are here to help! Willows is proud to offer lactation support with our experienced lactation consultants before and after your baby is born. Our class is open to all parents and is free of charge – you do not need to have children who are patients at Willows, or have met our physicians, to attend the class. We are here for all Fairfield county families.
Topics Covered Include:
- Benefits of breastfeeding
- What to expect in the first 24-48 hours
- Positioning and latch
- Milk production, diet and nutrition
- Feeding schedules
- Pumping and storage
- Common issues and how to overcome
This class will be taught by Dana Czuczka, one of our certified lactation consultants at Willows Pediatrics. The class provides practical information to help get breastfeeding off to a successful start.
