Are you planning on taking any breastfeeding classes or talking to any lactation consultants? What sort of breastfeeding support does your m/w offer?

I have taken BFing classes for my doula training, and have helped lots of moms get BFing established, so I'm not planning on taking other classes. My midwife will make housecalls for immediate BFing concerns, and my mom BF'd for about 5 years total, so I don't expect any problems!

I haven't had any bfing courses but I did bf Bryce. The mw is very supportive of my wanting to bf again and told me that she'd help me if I needed it this time.

m/w offered BF support for first 6 weeks (on call even!). I didn't take a class because I had training in nursing and with my doula certification.
