Please try to log in to the Zoom meeting 10 minutes early so that you have time to get settled in, as class begins promptly at 6:30 p.m.

Breastfeeding Basics was a great class. I learned so much about what to expect and how to manage breastfeeding once I return to work. I highly recommend this class to all mothers who will be breastfeeding for the first time – Class participant
