It isn’t what we don’t know that gives us trouble, it’s what we know that ain’t so.
— Will Rogers

“Prepare.”, the first class in Breastfeed Atlanta’s Better Breastfeeding series, consists of a unique blend of education, group support, and clinical monitoring. A prenatal breastfeeding class designed with science and the modern family in mind.

Prenatal preparation is essential for every successful breastfeeding experience! In this class, participants will learn about the basic science behind lactation and how breastfeeding works. We will cover just how to lay the foundation for a booming milk supply, avoid pain, and feel confident in the first few weeks postpartum!

Facts:

  • It is not normal for breastfeeding to hurt

  • Most mothers can produce enough breastmilk

  • Breast size has nothing to do with milk production

  • Nearly all shapes and sizes of nipples and breasts are fine for breastfeeding

  • Night feeds are important for babies and mothers

  • You don’t need to wait for your breasts to fill up with milk

  • It's normal to have difficulties - 92% of all people who breastfeed report significant problems in the first week.

Fiction:

  • Pain is normal with breastfeeding

  • New moms don't make enough milk

  • Plenty of people just don’t make enough milk

  • You should only eat bland foods while breastfeeding

  • If you give your baby bottles of pumped milk, she will refuse the breast
