SMH Holds Breastfeeding
Family Birthplace at Stephens Memorial Hospital
announces an upcoming Breastfeeding Your Newborn Class
for new and experienced mothers.
The class will
be held on Friday, May 2nd from 6 - 8:00 pm in the
Harper Conference Center.
Martel, RNC, ICCE, IBCLC will be leading the class,
which will cover the facts of breastfeeding, and help to
dispel the myths about it. The group will also
learn skills for successful breastfeeding, as some
infants are born knowing what to do and some need help
learning; some mothers also take more naturally to
breastfeeding while others require more support.
This class will help make people aware of the support
services available to breastfeeding mothers.
American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding
for all babies and the staff at The Family Birthplace
are here to assist.
