Breastfeeeding Your Newborn

breastfeeding 1

Are you an expecting mother or newly postpartum and wanting to have a smooth breastfeeding journey? 

While breastfeeding is natural, it doesn’t always come naturally. It is a learned art. At Omaha Birth & Babies, we know that mothers who feel informed and supported are more likely to have a successful breastfeeding experience. 

Start your breastfeeding journey off right with this in-depth class taught by Therese, an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant), Certified Postpartum Doula  and NICU RN.


FAQ About Breastfeeding Your Newborn

This class will discuss topics such as:

How your body makes milk

  • Positioning & Latching
  • Feeding Patters
  • When to feed your baby
  • How to know your baby is getting enough
  • How to identify complications/getting treatment 
  • Caring for your breasts
  • Breastfeeding Nutrition
  • Returning to work 
  • and more!

Moms are encouraged to bring a partner to class. Dad/Partners will learn ways to help and support mom and baby’s breastfeeding journey as well as ways to bond with baby that don’t require being able to feed baby.

You are more than welcome to bring food and drinks you enjoy. 

Currently classes are being held in person in West Omaha. 

The class fills up quickly and space is limited. Plan on taking your class around your 30-36 week of pregnancy.
