Breastfeeding a baby — what could be more natural?
But even natural things take time to learn, and breastfeeding is no exception. It is easier when you have the correct information, support and a little motherly know-how.
Our breastfeeding class, led by Christine Sciandra, is held the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30. It covers all aspects of breastfeeding, including:
- Benefits for mom and baby
- The first weeks and beyond
- Avoiding difficulties
- Returning to work
- Breastfeeding resources
The class is offered at no charge. We encourage moms to attend with their partners or other support person.
“A newborn baby has only three demands. They are: warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three.” ~ Grantly Dick-Read
