Breastfeeding Classes

Evidence shows that mothers who are educated and supported throughout their breastfeeding experience are much more likely to achieve their breastfeeding goals.

Melissa Morgan, IBCLC, CLE, offers breastfeeding classes to provide you with the knowledge and support that you and your baby need to successfully breastfeed.

Breastfeeding classes are offered in Spokane, Coeur d'Alene, and online.

Our breastfeeding classes will help:

  • Make breastfeeding easier
  • Integrate breastfeeding into your lifestyle
  • Understand how breastfeeding works
  • Navigate booby traps that might hinder breastfeeding

Lamaze Series:

This class is designed for first-time parents, or when one parent is brand new to the labor and birth process.

The series is structured around the Lamaze 6 Healthy Care Practices to Promote Healthy, Safe, Normal Birth. This is a hands-on interactive class.

Main topics discussed are:

  • Stages and Phases of Labor
  • Coping in labor
  • Challenging Labor
  • Common interventions
  • Informed Decision making and birth plans
  • Postpartum & newborn care

Refresher Classes

This class is designed for experienced parents who have taken childbirth preparation classes in the past and would like to take a refresher course.

It is an interactive class, where parents are encouraged to share the story of their prior birth(s), discuss the ways this birth may play out differently, and explore what they can do to aid labor progress and have a satisfying birth.

In this class, we will review the stages of labor and explore methods for labor support and comfort techniques, with time for hands-on practice.

Spinning Babies®

Spinning Babies® Parent Class highlights your baby’s active role to rotate down and out of the pelvis.

Learn techniques to help muscles in your pelvis support an easier birth. During labor, the baby turns through three levels of the pelvis. Together, you and your birth partner can use these techniques before and during labor to help “make room for baby!” Spinning Babies reveals how the baby can find optimal positions for labor and allows birth to be more comfortable.

This class is for expectant parents only. Professionals are invited in the Spinning Babies® Workshop.
