We are pleased to offer online education as an alternative for those who cannot attend a conventional childbirth or breastfeeding class due to bed rest, scheduling conflicts, travel, or time constraints. These interactive, web-based programs include animated illustrations, videos, voice-overs, and games. You will receive a book and have access to the program for eight weeks from first login. A childbirth educator and lactation consultant will be available to answer your questions by email or phone.
