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.

Group Classes

Preparing to Breastfeed

Our prenatal breastfeeding class prepares parents for what to expect in the first days and weeks with baby. Learn how breastfeeding and milk-production works, the non-breastfeeding partner and family members can help, and what to do when things don’t go as expected.

Beyond the Bump: Back to Work Planning

Transitioning back to working outside the home can seem daunting. 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
