Expectant Mother Feed

No cost breast feeding classes in April 2018

Healtdepartment

The Florida Department of Health in Volusia County (DOH-Volusia) is hosting no-cost breastfeeding classes for new and expectant mothers. Classes cover the basics of breastfeeding and are scheduled at DOH-Volusia locations from 6 to 8 p.m.:

Each evening class is a one-time session. Reservations are suggested but not required.

Lactation consultants from the department’s Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program offer resources and assistance to breastfeeding mothers. WIC also offers breastfeeding peer counseling programs. Trained peer counselors are chosen from the same socio/economic/ethnic groups as WIC clients and have successfully breastfed their own babies.  Breastfeeding peer counselors provide mother-to-mother basic breastfeeding education and support to pregnant and breastfeeding moms.

For information or to register for a breastfeeding class, please call 866-WIC FOOD (942-3663).
