The most popular comprehensive breastfeeding education class in the NYC metro area....FREE! Breastfeeding is an amazing opportunity for you to bond with your new little one. Breast milk gives your baby more than just good nutrition. It also provides important substances to fight infection. Breastfeeding has medical and psychological benefits for Mommy and baby. For many mothers and babies, breastfeeding goes smoothly from the start. For others, it takes a little time and several attempts to get the process going effectively. Like anything new, breastfeeding takes some practice.

“This was such a great class and really opened my eyes to topics I was unsure about. I didn’t think we would be covering so much useful information in such a short amount of time. We were both hesitant about attending a childbirth class but are now so happy that we did!”
