First Latch

Breastfeeding classes can help you get off to the best start with breastfeeding. Even if you aren’t sure that you want to nurse, we will provide you with accurate information in a non-judgemental way so you can make the best informed decision for your family.

Nursling breastfeeding classes are interactive, honest, and full of useful information. We will teach you evidence-based techniques that are easy to remember and work. Most of all they are FUN! This is NOT your typical breastfeeding class that the hospital offers. We help you build your support system before baby arrives so you have the confidence and commitment to meet your goals.

We offer Intensive workshops for first time parents and refresher classes for second time parents. Both are available in a group setting or in the privacy of your own home.

Group Classes
