This is my 2nd baby and although I breastfeed my 1st for 15 months the first 6 months of BFing were very rough because I never took time to get educated. My husband I and both agreed that becoming more informed this time will help empower us to be more successful.
I left feeling positive that I have the knowledge, resources, and now connection with Diba to help me when I need it.
I say don't wait till your baby is born only to be guessing or give up because you didn't inform yourself. You'll be thankful you took the time to take this class!
