Breastfeeding, also called nursing, is when breast milk is fed to a baby. Breastfeeding can be done directly from the breast and through pumping out the milk from the breast for bottle-feeding.

Although breastfeeding is natural, it is a learned behavior for the baby and mother. Learning all you can before giving birth can help boost confidence once the baby is born; at Jackson we provide free prenatal breastfeeding classes and have a breastfeeding support group for new mothers who have elected to breastfeed.

You may register for any of the classes listed below.
