Latch It

******Due to COVID-19 we are doing Latch It via Zoom until further notice. The dates are listed below. In order to optimize the experience, we do limit the number of attendees for each session. If you are interested in “attending,” please call our office at (804) 282-4205 to reserve your spot. We will also need to obtain your phone number or email address so we can send you the Zoom meeting link. We enjoy seeing your faces, so should you attend, we encourage you to turn video on. Please mute on your end to minimize distractions. You may ask questions via the chat feature.******

Latch It is an introductory, prenatal breastfeeding class for moms-to-be that covers tips to get breastfeeding off to a good start, basic latching strategies, potential pitfalls, and common concerns.

Classes are free and will occur monthly at our Short Pump location. The classes will be led by one of our 5 IBCLC’s (International Board Certified Lactation Consultants): Jan Dalby, Robin Allman, Laura Duke, Lauren Freeman, or Heather Westfall. They are separate from our monthly Prenatal Open Houses, but attendees are welcomed and encouraged to attend both, if interested.

Space is limited to 12 participants per class in order to optimize the learning experience. Classes are for moms-to-be only (sorry dads). Sometimes moms have very personal and/or intimate questions to ask about breastfeeding, and may not feel comfortable asking them with men around. We really want you as a participant to feel comfortable asking whatever questions you may have.

Please see the list below for 2020 Latch It dates. All classes will be from 6:30 to 8:30 pm on Thursday evenings. If demand is high, we may open up additional classes. To reserve your spot on your preferred date call (804) 282-4205 and follow the prompts to speak with a receptionist. We look forward to meeting you soon!
