As a CAPPA certified Lactation Educator, I am passionate about providing breastfeeding education and guidance to all women who desire to breastfeed.

When you pay the suggested fee for any of my private breastfeeding classes, you will be eligible for one free home visit after your baby is born. A home visit after your baby is born will provide you with additional guidance as well as a chance for you to ask any questions specific to you and your baby. Choosing any of my breastfeeding classes will give you access to all of my breastfeeding resources as well as unlimited phone and text support.

Partners are always welcome and encouraged to attend.

Donation-based breastfeeding classes in a group setting are offered periodically in addition to private classes. Please contact me or subscribe to the events on our Facebook page for details on my next group breastfeeding class.

This class can be taken during pregnancy or postpartum- regardless of when you are returning to work.

Breastfeeding Essentials + Going Back to Work

Choosing both classes will provide you with complete knowledge of breastfeeding essentials and breastfeeding upon returning to work. The "Going Back to Work" class does not cover the essentials of breastfeeding. Therefore, if you are returning to work I recommend taking the combination class unless your breastfeeding relationship has already been established, you have already taken a breastfeeding class, or if you have breastfed a previous baby. Both portions of this class can be taken together or separately, whichever you prefer.

Investment:

$75-$150 (Suggested Fee of $100)

The suggested fee for this class is $100. However, we offer a flexible sliding scale of $75-$150 and our clients pay what they are able to, no questions asked.

In order to be eligible for a free home visit, you must pay at least the suggested fee of $100.
