Breastfeeding provides benefits to both mom and baby. Breastfeeding mothers have a decreased risk of breast and ovarian cancer, diabetes, and postpartum depression. Breastfed babies have increased protection against illnesses and a lower risk of allergies, ear infections, asthma, and obesity. This class will help soon-to-be parents learn what to expect with breastfeeding, how to recognize baby’s feeding cues, positioning techniques, and problem-solving skills. Classes are from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month at La Porte Hospital in the Childbirth Education and Prenatal Classroom. The next class is being held on August 6. Class sizes are limited and advanced registration is required. Register at laportehealth.com/childbirth.
