Lactation & Breastfeeding Classes in Eugene
Devorah Bianchi RN, IBCLC
For over 15 years, Pacific Women’s Center in Eugene has helped many moms and babies with a variety of breastfeeding classes and problems they may be experiencing. In July 2012, PWC enlisted the service of Devorah Bianchi with Loving Arms Lactation to present our on-going lactation education classes. Devorah is an RN with IBCLC (International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners) and ANLC (Advanced Nurse Lactation Consultant) certification. She brings knowledge, enthusiasm, humor and compassion to the Eugene breastfeeding class.
The lactation and breastfeeding classes are free for Pacific Women’s Center patients. We generally hold classes once per month. We recommended taking the breastfeeding class 1 to 2 months prior to the baby’s due date. Research has shown that taking a breastfeeding class before the baby is born increases the mother’s confidence and breastfeeding success. Once your baby is born, he or she will want to begin breastfeeding right away. The days after the baby comes are overwhelming and tiring. It can be harder to take in the information about breastfeeding.
Why Take the Breastfeeding Class Before the Baby is Born?
By taking the breastfeeding class in Eugene ahead of time you will leave with an understanding of how breastfeeding works and what problems you might be on the lookout for as your baby learns how to breastfeed.
We encourage you to bring along a spouse, partner, or significant other involved in baby care. They also attend the class for free. Breastfeeding classes in Eugene are held in the front lobby of our office at The TEN Building, 10 Coburg Road, Suite 100. Please contact our office at 541-342-8616 to schedule your attendance or ask your obstetrician at your next appointment.
