Back to Work Class

  • Sweet Pea Yoga Studio 3717 North Ravenswood Avenue, Suite 213-214 Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)

Since August of 2014, we've prepared over 250 breastfeeding moms to return to work.  Vanessa Prinz, IBCLC, and part time working mother of 4, leads this monthly class which is ideal for moms returning to work in 4-8 weeks.  Vanessa will provide a step by step guide to returning to work and continuing to breastfeed.  Some of the topics covered include how much milk to offer/store per day, planning with employer, legal rights, pumping equipment, fit, techniques and frequency, breast milk management and storage, caregiver training and supply concerns.  

Babies are welcome in the class though some moms find they can focus more without baby present.  If you need to pump during class, please feel free to do so.  Class is usually offered over the lunch hour, so bring a lunch or snack to munch on during the meeting.  

Class is open to any moms returning to work - a prior private consultation with one of our lactation consultants is not necessary!
