Breastfeeding your new baby, if possible, is the healthiest means of nutrition you can give them. We are dedicated to helping you prepare for breastfeeding before your baby arrives and will offer you breastfeeding support here in the hospital once your baby is born.
Breastfeeding Education Classes
Breastfeeding classes are available as part of our Childbirth Class education, which you can register for at the link on the left. However, you may also enroll in breastfeeding eduction alone without enrolling in the full childbirth class by filling out the form below or calling 701-456-4729. The class fee is $10 and is due at classtime - cash or check appreciated!
Postpartum Breastfeeding Consultations
Before you are discharged from the hospital, we will arrange a time for you to return to the Obstetrics Unit for a postpartum breastfeeding consultation within the following week. This is an opportunity for you to get one-on-one help and feedback on breastfeeding after the first few days at home with your baby.
Certified Lactation Counselors are available to assist you with breastfeeding concerns if you are having difficulty. Our staff can refer you.
