Breastfeeding Couple Class, taught by Renee Wymer is to prepare you prior to the birth of your baby in understanding the whys, hows and whens to breastfeeding to insure success.

This is a unique class with new approaches to learning positions and latching techniques. Studies indicate that taking a prenatal breastfeeding class was the best way to avoid problems with breastfeeding. We feel the support of the partner by learning techniques to support the new mom is essential.

We cover the “whys”, “how tos”, “when” and “whats” that go with breastfeeding. A must class for anyone considering breastfeeding whether for a few weeks or longer… working or staying home… come pregnant but open to new parents as well.

This is not a lecture only class- we offer video- hands-on practice with dolls for positioning and lots of interactive discussion. You will receive a link of handouts to take home to help. If you have any problems after the baby comes, we offer three months of FREE on-call support for any couples who attended this class.

Evidence-based studies showed the number one thing that helped diminish nipple trauma in new moms was prenatal education on the proper latch! An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

This class is taught in Roswell, GA.   View the class schedule on our CALENDAR

Although we believe that the group interaction is something that helps not only solidify the information, but also makes our classes more fun, we offer private classes in our childbirth class locations or your home for those whose schedules don’t allow a group interactive class setting. We offer these classes in our childbirth class spaces and ocassionaly in your home. We prefer our class spaces so we have full access to our teaching materials but also so you will not be distracted in your home environment. There are four modules that last about 2.5- 3 hours each that can be selected ala carte to tailor them to your specific needs. For a full class you would need to take all four modules. Each module can be individually priced or the set of four modules are available at a discount.

We teach our private modules to meet your needs, so you help to taylor them for what you are seeking. We try to make each class have some component of Body- Voice and Action. Birth is a mind, body connection- so you have to expand the way you think about birth. A good childbirth class is not just one that teaches you pain coping but does not address concerns and fears that can interfere with you body unfolding in labor. A good childbirth class does not just teach you positions to try in labor and not address interventions that may happen and how to ask good questions to find answers for your birth options. We teach four segments that make this a fully comprehensive class.  Look at the couples class for Wisdom for Birth and you can get an idea of some of what is taught in these private classes.
