Yes. I took the class through the hospital.
I didn't find it useful in helping me feed her once she got here, I'm a hands on kind of learner.
I did find it helpful in I didn't know the benefits of breastfeeding, until that class.
I went to a series through WIC. Think it was 4, maybe 5 classes. I knew most of the information they shared about the benefits and how it's produced and such. It more or less offered support. The issues LO and I encountered weren't covered in the class.

Excuse my typos, there is either a baby on my boob or sleeping in my arms
Thank you *sharon* for my adorable siggy
I did, at the hospital before Juliet was born. I also did a ton of reading, so I'm not sure which helped more. I did find out that while all the "book" knowledge was very useful, knowing how to breastfeed "in theory" was way different than "in practice." And then even though I had the experience and knowledge, the second time around I still needed a little bit of help with latch and position.
I did not. I birthed at a birthing center and my midwives talked to me a little about latch and milk supply immediately after E was born, but that's it. They gave me some printed information sheets and contact information for a local breastfeeding center, but I never needed it. We were very lucky.

I didn't take a class when I had DS, and I wish I had. I already knew the benefits of breast feeding and wanted that bond with my son. I spent many nights in tears because we had such a struggle with latching on and sore breasts. It's 14 years later, and knowing the issues I had with DS, I've signed up for a BF class. I at least am armed with questions to ask this time around to address the worries I have.
