Deciding to breastfeed is a personal choice you make for you and your baby. Breast milk is full of nutrients to help your baby grow and develop. It also has antibodies that help your baby stay healthy by fighting off viruses and bacteria. We understand that breastfeeding does not come naturally for all moms and babies. We’re here to answer your questions and provide any breastfeeding support you may need. 

Our two-hour breastfeeding class is taught by one of Sacred Heart Hospital’s lactation consultants. In this class, you will learn techniques for breastfeeding success. We also talk about some of the concerns new moms have about breastfeeding. The goal of our breastfeeding class is to answer your questions and help make your experience as smooth as possible. The class is $20 per couple. See list of available dates and reserve your space here.


Tours of Ascension Sacred Heart Pensacola’s Maternity & Women's Center will give soon-to-be moms an idea of what to expect during your stay at the hospital, including where to go, where to park and what to bring when you arrive for the delivery of your baby. Partners are welcome and encouraged to attend. See the list of available dates and reserve your space here.
