While breastfeeding rates continue to climb in the United States, 50% of women are breastfeeding at 6 months and only 22% are exclusively breastfeeding at this time. What can childbirth educators do to increase these numbers? This webinar will explore ways of supporting breastfeeding prenatally and postnatally, helping women to create and meet their breastfeeding goals.
