Attendee of Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding Class
It was so comprehensive and useful.

I feel so much more informed and confident now! Loved learning breastfeeding positions. So helpful!

Attendee of Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding Class
I learned a lot!

My experience has been great. Helpful, kind and compassionate. If you have zoom participants, try to keep that in mind. Once I asked Beth to repeat questions from the class (couldn't hear them), she immediately adjusted, which was so helpful!

Attendee of Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding Class
Such great information, so much so that it could be a two part series.

The most important thing I learned is that breastfeeding is hard but stick with it!
