BREASTFEEDING PREP CLASS
Many new breastfeeding parents are surprised at just how many questions they have in the early days of breastfeeding. Though breastfeeding may seem instinctual, it can often take a lot of patience, practice, and practical support before you get the hang of it. The best way to prepare for a successful breastfeeding relationship with your new baby is to take a prenatal breastfeeding prep class!
