Breastfeeding class

mom breastfeeding her baby

We strongly recommend that you breastfeed your baby for at least 6 months. The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Nurse Midwives, and the American College of OB/GYN all endorse breastfeeding as the best choice for babies. We encourage you to take our 2 hour class which includes topics such as: how to start breastfeeding, how your body makes milk, breastfeeding positions, how to overcome latch-on and other common setbacks, and an overview of breast pumps. This class meets twice a month on Wednesday from 9 - 11 a.m.

If you have questions you can also call our Certified Lactation Consultant at (254) 288-8263 before or after the birth of your baby. The Mother Baby Unit also has Certified Lactation Consultants who can help initiate breastfeeding while you are in the hospital.
