Event Information

6:45pm - 6:45pm

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 held every month from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. at the La Porte Hospital in the Childbirth Education and Prenatal Classroom. The next class is August 5.  Class sizes are limited and advanced registration is required. Register at
