Jesse Zilberstein, MPA, IBCLC

Soon-to-be-Moms, couples are encouraged to attend!

TBA: Please call The Pump Station in Santa Monica at (310) 998.1981 for next session

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 Dad 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 encouraged to attend.
