Prenatal Breastfeeding Education Classes
Oakville Prenatal Breastfeeding classes
At The New Mummy Company, we pride ourselves in being able to provide you with the best prenatal breastfeeding education in small group or private classes. We can provide prenatal breastfeeding education specifically designed to prepare you and your partner for all aspects of breastfeeding.
Join us for a group class in Oakville, we are located at Bronte Rd & Dundas St in the Palermo medical building. Our address is 2525 Old Bronte Rd, Unit 160, Oakville, L6M 4J2.
Our team of IBCLC qualified lactation consultants will be able to provide practical tips and advice to make you more confident as you begin to feed your baby. Attending a class locally with us means that you have already met with one of our local LC’s so if you need additional help or support once baby is born you already know who will come to visit you at home.
This group class is offered in person but should you prefer to attend the live and interactive class via Zoom then please let us know and we will happily arrange this for you.
At this time in keeping with provincial regulations, we need to request that you can provide us with your Covid-19 vaccine passport in order to attend our in person classes. Zoom participation can always be offered as an alternative if required.
This is great course for both first-time moms and those who simply want to brush up on their breastfeeding knowledge. This particular class is taught one-on-one in the privacy and comfort of your own home or join our group class in Oakville.
Topics in the course include:
- Breastfeeding Basics
- Benefits of Breastfeeding (Include Health and Emotional Benefits For Both Mother and Child)
- Health Canada Recommendations
- Breast Anatomy
- Breastfeeding Positions
- Baby Led Latching
- Infant Cues
- Expressing and Storing of Milk
- Sexuality and Birth Control
- Common Breastfeeding Challenges (and effective management)
- Where to find support and assistance
Private classes are available in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and south east Ontario including Hamilton, Halton, Peel, Dufferin, York and Durham regions. These classes can be tailored to meet your specific needs – if there is a potential concern you would like to cover we can concentrate on the topic to relieve any anxiety you may have. If you would like to have a group session with friends this is also possible, it’s just a matter of giving us a call and we will take care of the scheduling.
We will cover the challenges you may face when breastfeeding and how to overcome them, be it not getting enough milk supply, latching positions or how to pump and store milk. We will help dispel the myths surrounding breastfeeding, supporting you on your breastfeeding journey and allowing you to relax when it comes to those first few feeds with your baby.
I used The New Mummy Company for a Lactation Consultant. They were professional and knowledgeable and very understanding as well. Excellent support and would highly recommend.

“Who fed me from her gentle breast
And hushed me in her arms to rest,
And on my cheek sweet kisses prest?
