SMH Family Birthplace offers Breastfeeding Classes 

The Family Birthplace at Stephens Memorial Hospital announces an upcoming Breastfeeding Class for new and experienced mothers.  The class will be held on Thursday, May 9th from 6:30 – 8:30 PM in the Harper Conference Center at the Ripley Medical Office Building (193 Main Street) in Norway.

Shannon Nassa RN, ICBLC will be leading the class, which will cover the facts of breastfeeding, and help to dispel the myths about it.  You will learn skills for successful breastfeeding, as some infants are born knowing what to do and some need to be taught. Some mothers may take more naturally to breastfeeding while others require more support.  This class will help make you 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 is 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 x 6951.  There is a $10 fee per couple.  Pre-registration with payment is required.  Classes are scheduled monthly.
