What Expectant Moms are Saying:
A trusted and reliable source
I felt as though I was able to learn about breastfeeding from a trusted and reliable source. You can tell Linda has a lot of experience and knows what she’s talking about, so I trust what she says. I feel much more confident to start my breastfeeding journey now and feel excited about it! I felt as though I learned lots of things that I couldn’t find on Google! I loved getting the bottle, swaddle, and breastfeeding pillow recommendations as well. I also liked how she gave my husband some ways he can help.
My overall experience has been wonderful! Linda and Nicole have made me feel secure and comfortable going into the birthing process. I feel more equipped with the material that was given. I also liked that this class was smaller, and the instructors made us feel comfortable asking any question.
Good and practical advice
These classes make me and my husband feel better prepared for what comes after birth. As a couple who has no family or close friends living near us, we need all the help we can get. This class was very informative, with lots of good and practical advice.
Taking the fear out of breastfeeding
Lots of good, solid information taking the fear out of breastfeeding, and presenting all of the reasons why it is beneficial to baby.
Nicole was a very engaging speaker and made us feel comfortable and safe.
About the Class:
This class is led by an experienced registered nurse (RN) and an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and has a small-group, personalized workshop feel.
