This class provides information to prepare you and your partner to successfully breastfeed your new baby as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control. The class covers feeding cues, latching and positioning, as well as preparing you to return to work.
Any first-time mom or previous breastfeeding mom will benefit from this class. Fathers or support persons are encouraged to attend. We recommend you attend between your sixth and last month of pregnancy. The class is two hours long and is attended one time only.
If Muskingum County is a Level 2 two hours prior to the start of class time, a cancellation notice will be issued. For your convenience, it will also be added to the cancellation notices on WHIZ for the classes that doesn't require registration.
