The Family Birth Center believes in helping patients and families even after the baby arrives. This is no more evident than our free classes and events run by our certified lactation consultants.
The Sky Lakes Noontime Nurslings

It helps aid the natural process of breastfeeding by giving knowledge and time for practice. This may be the class you need to overcome your past feeding challenges and have a new experience.

The Big Latch On
Groups of breastfeeding women coming together at registered locations around the world to all latch on their child at a set time. All the breastfeeding women and children are latched on for one minute at the set time and are counted by the witnesses. The numbers are added up and we see if we can beat previous Big Latch On records!
The Big Latch On supports communities with identifying and growing opportunities to provide ongoing breastfeeding support and promotion.
The key to the Big Latch On's success is allowing communities to hold their Big Latch On events, empowering them to create an event that relates to the people of their community, while still taking part in a worldwide event.
