Breastfeeding: Birth & Beyond

What You'll Learn

In this class, Cedars-Sinai lactation consultants will prepare you and your partner for nursing in the early days and later months following childbirth. You'll receive instruction, support and hands-on practice to help you transition from hospital to home and get into a successful breastfeeding rhythm.


This 1-day intensive class will include open discussions and is split into two parts:

  • The First Week: Getting Started
  • After the First Week: Now What?

When to Take the Class

We recommend that you register for classes in your 5th month of pregnancy and attend them during your 7th or 8th month.
