Coming into the class, my husband and I knew very little about breastfeeding. We both come from families who didn't breastfeed, and w felt alone and needed information on where to start. Gail was so wonderful and really helped both my husband and I feel like we could do it! Leslie was amazing as well and really helped to empower me and help put my mind at ease. I am so thankful a friend referred me to NMNB. It is a great feeling knowing that I have such amazing advocates and help right around the corner.

I am so glad that I signed up for this class. Gail was so informative, patient and realistic. I felt so comfortable asking my many questions. I walked away from the afternoon not feeling overwhelmed, but more at ease than anything. And, should I have any issues with breastfeeding, I know who my first call will be to...Gail!

Very informative class. I've read several books on breastfeeding and this class seems to have everything at once. Great video material. And you can ask tones of questions and get professional opinion rite from lactation consultant. As first time mom I was very worried how my breastfeeding is going to go. With help of professionals I've got everything covered including rented breast pump and other accessories.
