Breastfeeding Essentials: Arriving In the Milky Way
Boulder Community Health’s highest priority is to ensure we do everything
within our control to maintain the safety of our patients, staff and the
overall community. This requires us to take every opportunity to contain,
control and reduce the impact of the COVID-19 virus. According to the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), limiting public gatherings
is a very effective tool for slowing the spread of COVID-19.
We are following that CDC recommendation and cancelling all non-essential
public gatherings intended for community members. This is effective immediately
and includes all Childbirth and Parenting Classes and Support Groups.
We recognize that activities like community education programs and support
groups are highly valued by community members and the BCH staff who provide
those services. Accordingly, we have started a taskforce that is working
to identify alternative ways of providing such activities. We expect to
begin using such new approaches in the near future. The Family Birth Center
Plan is to offer E-Classes. You will be contacted with a link to register
for the e-class or you may request a refund.
Thank you for supporting this effort to safeguard our community. I also
encourage you to visit the homepage of our website,
www.bch.org, for regular updates about COVID-19.
This informative class will set you up for breastfeeding success. Partners
are encouraged to attend.
Class topics include breastfeeding basics, the lactation process, why skin-to-skin
contact is so important, helpful routines in the hospital and at home,
common concerns, and pumping.
You will learn: optimal positioning, latch, reading your baby signals,
how to know your baby is getting enough, nutrition, expectations and emotional
components of breastfeeding, and ways partners and others can connect
with baby and mom.
