Families are now welcome to register for the Birth & Babies series. In July, this 4-class series will support families who are expecting a baby to prepare for birth and breastfeeding. (Future series will consist of 6 classes in total.) This series is being brought to you as a project of Central Valley Lactation Association (CVLA), which also hosts Baby Café Bakersfield.
This series will be held on Monday evenings from 6-8pm. Taught by certified childbirth educators and IBCLCs, the series has been uniquely designed to help families learn about evidence-based birth and breastfeeding so that they can make informed choices. Families are encouraged to register for a series that is completed at least 3 weeks before their expected due date. It is preferable to complete the series early in the third trimester.
If you have concerns about completing the series prior to your baby's birth, please use the Contact Us function. Arrangements can be made for you to attend a partial set of classes.
Details about the July series and registration for July, as well as scheduled dates for future series, can be found under "Classes" here on the website. Our instructors look forward to welcoming families and forging connections that benefit the health of families in our community!
