November 2019 No Cost Breastfeeding Classes in Volusia County


The Volusia County Health Department is hosting no-cost breastfeeding and basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes for new and expectant mothers.

·         6 to 8 p.m., Tues., Nov. 5, at 775 Harley Strickland Blvd., Orange City.

·         10 to 11 a.m., Tues., Nov. 12, at 1845 Holsonback Dr., Daytona Beach.

Each 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.
