Breastfeeding has countless benefits for both a mother and her baby. Breastmilk contains all key nutrients babies need, plus probiotics and antibodies. Breastfeeding may help prevent many infant health problems. Breastfeeding also decreases a mother’s risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months and continued breastfeeding up to 2 years of age and beyond! Breastfeeding education has been shown to help increase breastfeeding rates and success and improve breastfeeding experiences. White Mountain Breastfeeding Coalition offers free prenatal breastfeeding education courses in-person and online which cover topics such as: Breastfeeding basics Skin to skin The “Golden Hour” Returning to work Breastfeeding rights Breastfeeding recommendations Common breastfeeding concerns ... and more!
