As part of your routine prenatal care, a great way to prepare for the arrival of your bundle of joy is by attending a prenatal class . Lactation Care Center RGV offers frequent prenatal classes in both English and Spanish. Our prenatal classes are full of evidenced-based information. We encouraged 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. Please call to register for one of our classes. Although we recommend that your attend during your 7th or 8th month of pregnancy, we will be happy to have you attend class at any point during your pregnancy.

Healthcare Professionals Classes

Lactation Care Center RGV is a resource for training individuals who want to gain more knowledge and experience in the field of lactation. Being this resource for our community allows medical, nursing and dietetic students to learn about the physiology of making breast milk, the effect of health conditions on the production of milk and infant conditions that can affect the production or transfer of breast milk.

We encourage healthcare providers to attend the breastfeeding trainings that are being held in our community. Here you will find upcoming trainings for healthcare professionals.
