Lactation Care Center RGV offers frequent prenatal classes in both English and Spanish and are full of evidenced-based information. We encourage you to bring your support person with you to class so that any doubts or misconceptions about breastfeeding or infant behavior can be clarified or so that any questions may be answered. Although we recommend that you attend during your 7th or 8th month of pregnancy, we will be happy to have you attend class at any point during your pregnancy.
