Free Breastfeeding Classes Offered at Brandon Regional Hospital

Whether you are expecting your first baby or adding to your growing family, it is always reassuring to go into this new chapter in your life with as much knowledge as possible especially when it comes to breastfeeding. We all know breastfeeding is beneficial for baby and even the mother, but it isn’t easy for everybody. This is why it is so important to take time out of your schedule to educate yourself before baby arrives and why Brandon Regional Hospital offers Breastfeeding classes at no charge.

Breastfeeding-Class-Brandon-Regional-HospitalThe one night classes offered throughout the year will not just tell you about the health benefits of breastfeeding, but the little things that can sometimes frustrate a new mother like how to get your baby to latch correctly so she can feed and how to best hold the baby while feeding. The instructor will also navigate you through pumping and storing your breast milk and where to get continued support after baby arrives. Even if you think you are fully prepared, it is worthwhile to spend an evening to learn more about how to make your breastfeeding journey as easy as possible so you can focus on bonding with your new baby.

The next class is scheduled for March 14, but seats are filling quickly. Check Brandon Regional Hospital’s website to learn more about future Preparing for Breastfeeding classes and more by clicking here. You can also call 813-653-1065.
