Comprehensive Prenatal Breastfeeding Class on DVD - Breastfeeding: The Ultimate MRE (Meals Ready to Eat) $29.99

We have found that many expectant moms are too busy to take a breastfeeding class before baby comes. However, instruction and a good foundation of information is vitally important to breastfeeding success. To this end, we have made our breastfeeding class available on DVD. It includes 2 disks and is approximately 3 hours of instruction on everything from preparing during pregnancy to nursing an older baby. It includes many interviews with real-life parents sharing their experiences. The DVD can be watched at your leisure and you can easily go back and review chapters as needed. Please contact Mellanie at (657)BF-HELP-1 or info.forbabiessake@gmail.com to purchase. Online ordering options coming soon.
