While this class is intended for families who have already had their babies and are currently breastfeeding, you are welcome to attend this class when you are pregnant if needed or desired.
This class is taught by Alison Spath, IBCLC. Alison teaches our Introduction to Breastfeeding class, facilitates our weekly breastfeeding support group Breastfeeding Cafe and also offers private lactation consults in your home or at Alison’s home office.
