Breastfeeding Essentials - LDS Hospital

Breastfeeding

Offered as a one-night class from 7-9:00 p.m.  Parents planning to breastfeed are strongly encouraged to take this class prior to delivery. Although breastfeeding is a completely natural process, it is also a learned skill. Class is open to both parents.

This class teaches the basic elements of breastfeeding, answers to questions related to breastfeeding and returning to work, plus it demonstrates products helpful to new and experienced mothers. A breastfeeding booklet is included with the course.
