We support exclusive breastfeeding because of the proven health benefits. To protect patients, staff and our community, in-person breastfeeding classes at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children and Madison Hospital have temporarily been suspended. However, our certified lactation specialists now offer virtual online breastfeeding classes to help expectant mothers learn about the significant benefits of breastfeeding, what to expect at the first breastfeeding session and strategies for breastfeeding success. This is approximately a two hour class.
Cost: Free (Each breastfeeding mom is encouraged to include one support person.)
