Birth & Baby: Lactation Support
While breasteeding is the biological norm for human babies, it isn’t always easy and our culture often makes it much harder than necessary. Breathing Space lactation classes and services are dedicated to helping parents navigate their breastfeeding journey with evidenced based information and support.

Our class will cover what to expect in a breastfeeding relationship through the first year of baby’s life, even when commuting to the office. We’ll discuss maintaining supply, pumping strategies, tips for simplifying (or outsourcing) to help balance household and office demands, and strategies for keeping your sanity.
One-on-One Support Services
