Private Breastfeeding Classes

Baby is coming soon, and you know you want to breastfeed, but the thought is overwhelming. How do you know what to do? Where do you start? How does it work? Do you need to take a class?While you’re still pregnant, one of the best ways to learn about breastfeeding is to take a class that provides hands-on practice. Tmuffin’s breastfeeding class in Wilmington, NC, provides complete preparation for breastfeeding (as close to the real thing as possible). In fact, our goal is to prevent a call to a lactation consultant after your baby is born. In our breastfeeding class, you’ll learn:

  • The benefits of breastfeeding.
  • How to hold and latch your baby on.
  • The supply and demand of your milk supply.
  • How to encourage a positive breastfeeding relationship even before baby is born.
  • About a breastfed baby’s poop and sleep.
  • How to do it all: breastfeed, manage your family, and get some sleep.
  • How to get support if you do experience a breastfeeding challenge.
  • Where to go to have your breastfeeding questions answered after your baby is born.

Please contact Mary Callaghan at 609-481-7015 to inquire about a private breastfeeding class.

About Mary:

Mary Callaghan Lactation Consultant Wilmington I started off my journey in motherhood at a relatively young age, 21. I knew nothing about childbirth or breastfeeding and really only committed to breastfeeding beacuse others told me I could not. It was rough going in the beginning, but something changed my life. The experience of breastfeeding my son led to interest and gaining more knowledge. I jumped into my new passion with both feet! I became a La Leche League leader when my son was 14 months old because I wanted to help moms the way other moms had helped me. The longer I got to work with moms and babies the more my passion grew. I now work as a private practice lactation consultant in Wilmington NC as well as a licensed in-home child care provider specializing in care for breastfed and cloth-diapered babies. I look forward to being able to help as many moms as I can achieve their breastfeeding goals!
