Lakeland Offers Breastfeeding Class in St. Joseph - Archived
(ST. JOSEPH) - A breastfeeding class for mothers and fathers will be presented on Tuesday, July 9, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., in the Frederick S. Upton Education Center at Lakeland Regional Medical Center, St. Joseph, 1234 Napier Avenue.

Lakeland HealthCare’s certified lactation consultant will discuss breastfeeding from delivery room to postpartum, the use of breast pumps, weaning, returning to work, and other topics.

In addition to enhancing the bond between mother and child, studies have shown that breastfeeding offers many health benefits. For a new mother, breastfeeding leads to less postpartum blood loss, helps with postpartum weight loss, and lowers the risk of ovarian and breast cancer. For the baby, breast milk enhances cognitive development, helps to fight illnesses, and is more easily absorbed by the digestive system than formula.

The cost for the breastfeeding class is $30, due at the time of registration. For more information or to register, call (269) 556-2808 or (866) 260-7544.
