This birth class covers:
- the basics of breast pumps
- mechanics of pumping
- maximizing output
- building a freezer stash
- breast milk storage guidelines
- bottle-feeding a breastfed baby
- pumping rights in the workplace
The ideal time to take this class is after the birth of your baby but well before you will be returning to work. Partners are welcome to attend, as are caregivers.
When should I take this class?
While you are welcome to take it whenever you like, we strongly recommend taking this class after the birth of your baby. This will give you time to get breastfeeding established before diving into pumping. Most parents take this breast pump class between 3-8 weeks postpartum. Try to take it at least a month before your return to work so we can discuss building a stash before the end of your maternity leave.
How much does this class cost?
The cost of this class is $39. It is included at no additional charge for clients of Babymoon Inn and anyone who has taken our 5-week childbirth preparation class series.
Can my partner come with me to class?
Yes. Partners are welcome, as is anyone who may be caring for your baby in your absence. Caregivers often find it helpful to learn about topics such as warming breast milk and paced bottle-feeding, so we welcome them to class as well!
