SMH Holds Breastfeeding Class

The 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, November 14th  from 6:00 - 8:00PM in the Harper Conference Center.

Gail 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. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding for all babies and the staff at The Family Birthplace are here to assist.

For a schedule of future classes, more information or to register for this class please call the Family Birthplace at 743-1562 x380.  There is no charge for the class.

Stephens Memorial Hospital is an affiliate of Western Maine Health, which is part of the Maine Health® family.  Visit Western Maine Health on the Internet at www.wmhcc.org.
