Breastfeeding: Birth and Beyond

Breastfeeding: Birth and Beyond is a three-hour class taught by Cedars-Sinai lactation consultants that will guide expectant families through the early days and months of breastfeeding, providing practical information and support. We will be able to help you transition home and find your own successful breastfeeding rhythm. The class is offered in a one-day intensive format in which two parts are taught back to back, offering the opportunity for discussion and hands-on practice.

  • Breastfeeding Part 1 — The First Week: Getting Started
  • Breastfeeding Part 2 — After the First Week: "Now What!?"

Plan to enroll in this class during the fifth month of pregnancy and take the class in the seventh or eighth month.
