Wondering when to register? Ideally, you will want to finish your class 4-6 weeks before your due date. We keep our class sizes small to better serve you. To help you get the class that best fits your schedule, we will update the spaces available if 3 or fewer slots remain.

About The Event
Prenatal: Breastfeeding & Pumping Basics (In Person!)
Gina Bolling, IBCLC
This class gives expectant parents evidence-based information to get breastfeeding off to a good start. We will discuss the learning curve of the early weeks and what to do if things aren’t unfolding as planned. Then we’ll explore pumps and other tools that help parents maintain the breastfeeding relationship in our modern lives. Ask your questions throughout, so you can feel more prepared to welcome your baby. Registration includes a gestational parent + a support person.
This class is available to you as DC Lamaze partners with the Breastfeeding Center of DC to better serve our expectant parents.
