    CLASS DESCRIPTION: Our [VIRTUAL AND IN HOUSE] Breastfeeding Class includes information on how to get breastfeeding off to a good start, common breastfeeding positions, how to encourage a robust milk supply, and much more! This live, interactive class is taught by a board certified lactation consultant and includes plenty of time for questions. You are encouraged to attend with a support person.
