Breastfeeding

Our breastfeeding class is helpful for those who plan to breastfeed, are unsure, or plan to pump and bottle feed. Please be sure to inform your instructor how you plan to feed your baby. Basics of breastfeeding including latching, positioning, and knowing when your baby is getting enough food are discussed as well as helpful trouble- shooting tips. Baby friendly tips which are those designed to ensure your baby is fed in the healthiest manner are woven throughout the presentation during this interactive class. We encourage you to bring spouse, significant other, or support person with you to class to better aid them in understanding all aspects of breastfeeding so they in turn can offer support and encouragement to you.

Breaks will be taken every hour and healthy snacks are available for purchase at a reasonable price.

We recommend this class be taken four to ten weeks prior to your due date.


Fee: $15.00 per couple, only one name per couple needs to register.
All Summa employees free with valid employee number.
Breastfeeding class is free to all patients registered for the 2-Evening Marathon, 2-Week Marathon and 4-Week childbirth classes.
