Once your bundle of joy has arrived, we encourage our mothers to breastfeed. Breastfeeding provides many important nutrients to your newborn, and can save you lots of money when it comes to buying formula. While breastfeeding may be "natural", it is not always easy. To make things easier on mom and baby, we offer a Breastfeeding Class, which describes benefits, positioning and latch, answers common questions and concerns, shares community resources, and teaches basics of breastpumps and milk storage. We welcome father’s interested in attending; their support is helpful for new moms.
