Expectant parents often assume that because breastfeeding is natural, it will also be easy from day one. But in addition to your intuition, like most things worth doing, breastfeeding comfortably and successfully involves knowledge you need to learn and skills you need to develop.
Taught by an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), this small-group class will help prepare you for a successful breastfeeding relationship with your baby.
This course focuses on birth and the first four days after birth, the vulnerable time when families are most likely to experience overwhelm and uncertainty about what they’re doing with infant feeding. Getting a good start in these early days often makes all the difference for how and whether breastfeeding goes forward.
Designed for third-trimester moms together with your partner/support person, the class will develop your abilities around how to do these things:
The class will last approximately two hours, followed by about thirty minutes of a question-and-answer period for participants to get professional input about anything else you’d like to know about early breastfeeding. The small-group format means you have more chance to ask whatever questions you may have. After the class, participants will receive an email with links to resources for further exploration of everything we discuss.
The class is being taught in English. Families who speak English as a first or second language are welcome to attend.
The cost of the prenatal breastfeeding class is DKK 695 per couple. Each class lasts approximately two hours, followed by a thirty-minute Q&A session. A packet of resources is included for you to take home.
