Breastfeeding Success is pleased to announce that "Breastfeeding Basics Class" will be offered as a real-time, virtual class Sunday, April 5th from 4:30-6:30 pm OR Saturday May 9th from 10am-12pm (note the date and time changes) with Michelle Poole. Michelle is an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and Registered Nurse with years of experience in walking with new parents through the many different experiences that take place as their sweet baby makes its way into the world. 

We believe that during this time of social distancing it is imperative that parents are able to establish and maintain community support. Participants will be contacted by email about 15 min before the class starts with a Google Meet invite to "attend" the virtual class. Please call 512-808-0237 with any questions or for help with scheduling. We look forward to seeing you in class! Please note that you will be fully refunded if you would not like to take the class and let us know which time you would prefer. Read below for a message from Ascension.   

Thank for your patience while we get through all of this

 At Ascension Providence our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, providers, associates, and communities. As cases of COVID-19 increase across the U.S., Ascension continues to aggressively respond to this evolving situation to protect our associates and those who we are privileged to serve. We regularly treat patients with infectious diseases and our clinical teams are highly trained in infection prevention protocols. Ascension is closely monitoring COVIDÔÇÉ19 developments and working daily in partnership with our local and state health departments and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

After much discernment regarding the best course of action to limit possible exposure to this virus and in an abundance of caution, we have decided it is in the best interest of our associates and the community to temporarily postpone all upcoming hospital maternity tours and classes, until further notice.  We will share relevant updates with you by email. In the meantime, please visit to watch a video tour of our maternity unit.

This two-hour class teaches techniques for breastfeeding success and addresses common concerns to make your experience as smooth as possible.

Breastfeeding is an incredible gift to your baby! This class will prepare you with the most essential information about how breastfeeding works, how to get started with breastfeeding, how to make sure your baby is getting enough milk, breast care, returning to work, and more.  Partners are welcome and encouraged to attend. 

Classes are held in Classroom 3/4 located across from the cafeteria. There will be signs to point you in the right direction upon entering the main lobby.

If your class required payment, a refund will be given if a cancellation request is received 2 business days (48 hours) prior to the start of the class/program. A full refund will be given for any class cancelled by the site.
