Register for my breastfeeding lifestyle class and start preparing today to successfully feed your baby. Breastfeeding is a natural and wonderful way to feed your baby! It provides many benefits for both baby and mother, but it can be challenging to figure out those first days and weeks. It is very important that a new breastfeeding mother is prepared and feels cared for and supported.

We step out side all the books and give you a look at what it's like breastfeeding a newborn. This class is similar to a hospital breastfeeding class. Hospitals are limited on what they can actually teach you, we teach you all of that plus lots more! Spouses/Partners are welcome and encouraged to come! Cost is $35 per couple.
Support and knowledge are the keys to breastfeeding success!
