Breastfeeding Education Classes - Face-to-face classes

Where COVID-19 restrictions allow, there may be face-to-face breastfeeding education classes being run in your area.

Breastfeeding Education Classes are a 3-4 hour workshop-style session, designed for expectant parents to prepare for breastfeeding in the vital days, weeks and months after their baby's birth. These sessions aim to expand upon the knowledge gained at hospital antenatal classes, to give up-to-date information and insights into breastfeeding a baby and parenting in the early days.
