Prenatal Breastfeeding Classes
Our community breastfeeding classes are offered monthly in connection with The Family Wellness Centre. This two-session class covers a wide array of topics, including normal birth, interventions, and how each of these impact breastfeeding.
Participants leave class with the knowledge of what to expect and with a customized support plan in place to ensure the success of their breastfeeding goals.
Border City Breastfeeding is aware of the statistics
emphasizing the partner's role in breastfeeding success and duration. This is one of the many reasons we encourage expectant fathers, partners, and support personnel to attend classes.
Classes are typically held on the 1st and 2nd Wednesday of -the month from 7-9 pm. Course registration includes mother and a partner of her choosing. Classes are always open to HCP and professionals who are interested in learning more.
Pre-registration is required.

Praise for Border City Breastfeeding Classes
"I wish this class was available years ago; before I had my first baby. What an amazing resource!"
"After taking this class, we knew what to expect at the hospital and at home. There was so much comfort in knowing we had a competent resource to call on if we had questions.
"Becky taught us so much! I thought I knew everything I needed to know from reading a few websites. This class was a fantastic wake-up call. I am ready now!"
"This class was great. I really wanted to know what I could do to help my girlfriend. This class was so helpful. It made all the difference when my son was born."
Private classes are a fantastic way to tailor your breastfeeding education to fit the needs of your family and your baby.
Private classes are available in-home and by appointment. Most private classes are approximately 2.5 hours and involve mother and partner.
Private classes start at $150.
