Group + Private Breastfeeding 101 Classes in Winnipeg
Breastfeeding is one topic that new parents often forget to prepare for before baby is born. Knowing what to expect and learning tips and tricks ahead of time can help ensure an easier breastfeeding journey.
Although, breastfeeding is natural it is not always easy. Breastfeeding is a combination of learned and instinctual behaviours for both parents and baby in the weeks and months following birth.
