Breastfeeding Classes

2019 Breastfeeding Classes Now Open for Registration

Monday, December 17, 2018

Classes are now open for registration for the monthly 2019 Human Resources breastfeeding classes. Both classes are taught by an international board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) so all information provided is supported by the latest research. The IBCLC also draws on her experience from working with mothers and babies for over 15 years. PSU-140: Basics of Breastfeeding, covers information needed to prepare for breastfeeding during the early weeks. Topics include: normal newborn behavior, establishing milk supply, positioning and latch, and how to tell if baby is getting enough milk. This class is ideally taken prenatally. PSU-141: Working and Breastfeeding, covers information related to combining work/student life and breastfeeding. Topics include: planning for return to work or class, milk pumping and storage, and bottle feeding a breastfed baby. This class can be taken either prenatally or within the early weeks after delivery. To view class dates or register for a class, visit the Learning Resource Network.
