It is suggested that you have previously attended the 2 hour breastfeeding introduction session within birthEd's 4-week or 9-week antenatal course, as this will answer the more basic questions.  If you were unable to attend an intro session, please still book on, but contact us to let us know that you have not had this prior info.
