Genesys Family Birthing Center offers the following class as a one day session to help you prepare for breastfeeding.

We encourage you to participate and enjoy this special time in your life and the development of your baby:

  • New moms will also be given instructions on how to pump and store breast milk.
  • The class is approximately 2 1/2 hours long.

Register for classes as early as possible. Ideally, classes should be taken during the dates of when you are 32-34 weeks gestation. Register under the expectant mother's name. A support person is encouraged to attend with you and is included with the expectant mother's registration.

You will receive a confirmation email with the directions to the class room. Please read it thoroughly.
