This class was a great starter class for learning to BF. The lactation consultants at Memorial Hospital are, by far, the best in the area. They go above and beyond to help and have a passion for what they do. They weekly "Mommy and Me" class hosted by Ruth is another great outlet. Ruth and her team are amazing. They allow Moms that delivered at other hospitals to come in for assistance, just call. Highly recommend!
