Now that you have breastfeeding down and are confident in your routine, things are going to change again. But returning to work doesn't have to mean the end to breastfeeding. We offer this class to help set you up for success and prepare you for the changes ahead.
Who it's for: New parents, ideally one month prior to the end of your maternity leave. Please note: for Moms with BCBSRI, we can tailor a specific return to work plan for you in a consult during business hours. Please call the office at 884-8273 to schedule an appointment.
Details: Please note, registration the Sunday before class is required. The goal of this class is to give you the tools and knowledge you need to feel confident returning to work as a breastfeeding mother. We encourage significant others to attend the class too as their support is incredibly important during this transition. During the class Registered Nurse and Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Kathy Moren covers topics including: choosing a breast pump, parts of a breast pump, proper assembly, breast pump cleaning and sterilization, storing and feeding expressed breast milk, sustaining milk supply, common pumping concerns and questions, knowing and understanding your rights, and getting the support you need.
Cost: $50 per couple
