What you'll learn in this breastfeeding class:

Breastfeeding is easy right? Yes! For many women, it is. But there are some common pitfalls to avoid. If you are prepared with what to look out for from the first moments to first days, you have a much higher likelihood of ease with breastfeeding and a plentiful milk supply. 

We offer a combined breastfeeding and newborn care class which will help new families to become familiar with the basics of feeding and caring for your infant in the early days and weeks after birth. 

Partners encouraged to attend!

Topics covered will include:

  • How to get breastfeeding off to the best start
  • How to help your infant latch-on and correct positioning
  • How to know if the baby is getting enough milk
  • How to avoid common breastfeeding problems and when to call a specialist
  • Understanding normal infant behavior, communication, appearance and sleep patterns
  • Understanding common newborn procedures in the hospital
  • Understanding the basics of sleep, soothing techniques (including swaddling), diapering, cord care, sponge-bathing, and assessment of your baby
  • Understanding postpartum adjustment for the whole family
  • Newborn warning signs

Note: Price is per couple.

Refund Policy
The school highly recommend that students schedule any prenatal classes or workshops to end by the time they are 36 weeks pregnant. If they schedule class for after they begin their 36th week, they run the risk of having their baby and missing their class without a refund. In the event that they go into labor before 36 weeks, they may apply 90% of the class cost to another class (i.e.: CPR) or service (i.e.: postpartum doula care).

In the special circumstances of a mother-to-be being placed on bed rest or delivering before 36 weeks before the beginning of a class series, they may apply 90% of the class fee to another class or service at Birth Day Presence. If bed rest or delivery happens while they are in the middle of a series (and they would have completed their classes before they began their 36th week), they may apply the fees from the unused portion of the class toward another class or service at Birth Day Presence.

Birth Day Presence is not responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for classes missed as a result of scheduling conflicts, vacations, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control.

Cancellation Policy

If students cancel their class:
  • 30 plus days in advance, they will receive 90% refund
  • 15-30 days in advance, they wil receive 50% refund 
  • 14 days or less in advance, there are no refunds
Rescheduling Policy

If they need to reschedule a class:
  • 15 + days in advance, no fee, as long as there's availability 14 days or less in advance, $35 rescheduling fee, as long as there's availability.
  • In the event that they need to miss a one-time class due to medical absence, they may transfer into a class with available space with a doctor's note.
Class Cancellation or Adjustment by Birth Day Presence

Birth Day Presence reserves the right to alter class times due to low enrollment. Every effort will be made to work with students' schedules to ensure that the student receives the instruction she signed up for. If the school cannot place students in another class or schedule a private session comparable to what they signed up for, a full refund will be given.
