Breastfeeding is a learned skill, like learning to cook; it requires patience and practice. At St. John Medical Center we support the practice of breastfeeding
by providing the following classes and support:
Preparation Class for Breastfeeding Prenatally
Taught by a lactation consultant every other month in the evening. Link to the Childbirth and Educational Classes for times and locations and
how to register for the class (click here).
Lactation Consultants while you're in the hospital
During your postpartum stay lactation consultants will make a complementary visit during this period to assess how baby is feeding and support
you with information and suggestions on breastfeeding techniques.
