Preparing to Breastfeed Classes

A Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) or International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) will share tips to make breastfeeding easier!  This class is geared towards avoiding common problems and getting breastfeeding off to a good start.  For more information on pumping and feeding a baby expressed milk – please also look into the Breastfeeding and Bottles class!  You will receive a book with this class that will also give you online tools and apps for further review.  Questions are always welcome and helps us customize each class to your needs.

This class is currently being offered as a 2 hour live webinar.  It helps to have a doll or stuffed animal with you as we review common holds.  We do suggest that partners or a support person attend with you if possible!

Return to Work While Breastfeeding

Once breastfeeding a newborn is working well, often it is time to go back to work or school. Our “Return to Work” class has helpful information about expressing (pumping) breast milk, storing milk, and feeding babies using mother’s milk. This class is right before our Baby Café meets at Sisters hospital, so please feel free to stay and visit more with our lactation consultants and other new parents!
