Detroit: Breastfeeding Basics (2023, In-person)

Our Board Certified Lactation Consultant will give you valuable information that will help get breastfeeding off to a great start


Whether you have decided to breastfeed or are just considering it, this class will answer your questions and help you get off to the best possible start on your nursing journey. Our goal is to help you gain confidence, troubleshoot if needed, and have a happy, well-fed baby! Topics include breastfeeding basics, proper hold, what to expect immediately after delivery, and beyond. The class is taught by a registered nurse/International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).

We are excited to announce we will be gifting each registrant an "Understanding Breastfeeding" book and exclusive web app that works on any type of mobile device or computer. The book and app are a perfect companion to our program! The Injoy app includes engaging videos, 3D animations, helpful web links, downloadable PDFs, and a Parent's Toolbox loaded with interactive tools. It is yours to keep and share with your support team!
