We hold group classes at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Brighton and in our South Boston Studio. These classes are tailored to expectant women who want to prepare for breastfeeding after birth. We also offer this class as a private, 1:1 in-home session.

Moms with infants may be interested in our Free Breastfeeding Support Group or In-Home Lactation Consultations.
