Private Prenatal Breastfeeding Class

Get ready for breastfeeding!


Preparing for breastfeeding gets you off to a great start. A private prenatal class provides the information, skills and confidence you need for successful breastfeeding. The class is offered via Zoom by Beverley Rae, a board certified lactation consultant with more than 25 years experience.

Virtual classes are especially convenient if you’re on bed rest!

Breastfeeding in special situations

A prenatal class is empowering when planning for breastfeeding in special situations: when expecting twins and triplets, after breast reduction surgery, when breastfeeding was difficult with a previous baby, and for women with a chronic illness or disability.
