Breastfeeding and Pumping Basics is the perfect class for working moms and dads-to-be who can’t make the Breastfeeding Center K-street location Breastfeeding Basics and Breastpump Basics classes during the workday. This special class is offered on Capitol Hill at a convenient time for working families and combines the need-to-know information from both of these classes.
This class teaches the basic anatomy and physiology involved in breast milk production and breastfeeding and also the basic information for choosing and then using a breast pump. Mothers will learn what to expect during the first days after birth, as well as what to do if things do not go as planned. Class will discuss what preparation and supplies are helpful. In addition, pump demonstrations will be shown and mothers will also receive instruction on pumping strategies for the early weeks. This class lays the foundation for our Return to Work class (recommended to take a few weeks before returning to work). The instructor is one of our experienced lactation consultants.
Payment is required in advance for class registration; cost is $70 per couple. Private classes are also available in our office, your office, or your home. Register directly through the Breastfeeding Center.
