  • This may just be at the one in my city but they taught my friend proper feeding techniques, the benefits of breastfeeding, proper diet/nutrition while breastfeeding, offered information of the types of BC that can be used (if they so choose), and they also gave her these hard plastic dome things to get her nipples "trained" because she had inverted nipples. Other than that they were there primarily to answer any questions and address personal concerns

  • They also teach you how to use a breast pump so you can store breast milk.
