What you'll learn

We run several breastfeeding classes that you can attend before you give birth.  These  give you practical advice on breastfeeding, including

  • How to latch your baby
  • What you can expect from a breastfed baby
  • How breastfeeding works
  • Hand expressing
  • The benefits of exclusive breastfeeding

Please feel free to bring along a support person.

These classes are always well attended, and women are often turned away because they are full. If you find you are unable to attend, let us know so your place can be given to someone else.

If you have your baby at Wellington Hospital, you can attend ‘Little Latch On’ classes while staying at Wellington Hospital. These run Monday to Friday, 10.00-11.00am.
