Breastfeeding with Confidence: A Beginner's Guide

Are you an expecting mother or newly postpartum and wanting to have a smooth breastfeeding journey? Join Omaha Birth and Babies’ Birth Doula and Certified Lactation Counselor for an in depth class on the physiology, art and journey of Breastfeeding. 

The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of a baby’s life; and nursing for at least two years in addition to solid foods. Many mothers choose to end their breastfeeding journey far before their goal for a variety of reasons; many of which could have been prevented and/or

helped through proper lactation education and support. When hurdles do arise, it will be even easier to work through them, with a foundation and knowledge on breastfeeding basics.
