Breastfeeding is a learned art for mother and baby. Our RN/board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) or lactation counselors will teach you the key elements to get breastfeeding off to the very best start! We'll begin by separating facts and fiction as we discuss the health benefits for mom and baby! Other topics include learning your baby's feeding cues, how long and often to feed, how to know if baby is getting enough, how to increase your milk supply and how breastfeeding works for working moms. There will be plenty of time for questions and answers. Since family support is so important, we strongly encourage dad, grandmother or another support person is to attend at no additional charge.
Please note: Baptist Health also offers FREE breastfeeding support groups at Baptist South and Destination Maternity.
