Intro to Breastfeeding
Soon-to-be-Moms, couples are encouraged to attend!
Producing breast milk is natural, yet the art of latching the baby onto the breast is learned. This class is taught by Certified Lactation Consultants and provides clear, accurate breastfeeding information for the "soon-to-be" new mother.
We cover breastfeeding expectations, strategies for success and how to avoid complications. Topics include breastfeeding techniques, various nursing positions and comfort holds, maternal diet considerations, nipple care, leaking, tips for partner feedings, and the advantages of human milk over supplementation. Discussion includes the various breast pumps for purchase or rental. We answer all your questions, including the all-important one: "How do I know my baby is getting enough?"
This is an interactive, 3-hour class and couples are strongly encouraged to attend. A well informed partner is invaluable support!
Price is per couple.

I love this place. As a new mom having a resource like the pump station has been paramount to my success. The classes offered are interesting and informative. I brought my husband to the breastfeeding class. He walked in expecting a bunch of hormonal pregnant ladies talking about their boobs and walked out a breastfeeding convert. Having him attend this class has helped me immensely in my breastfeeding challenges/adventures. - Christine M
My husband and I took the Baby Care 101 Class and the Breastfeeding Class. Both were very informative and non-judgmental. The teachers were excellent and helpful. As a first time mom it was really helpful to take these classes and get as prepared as possible. I feel much more at ease and prepared for the baby! - Lynn T.
My wife and I took their Intro to Breastfeeding and Baby Care 101 classes. They are so well worth your money. We felt like we had all the answers to the test when our daughter arrived. We had zero problems in getting her to breastfeed from day 1 and we owe it all to the Pump Station! - Andrew S.
