Do it on your own schedule

It’s great because it’s flexible, and you can do it on your schedule, and you don’t have to actually leave your house or drive somewhere. And it’s nice, too, because you can go back and re-look at content, and I really appreciated the takeaways and clips.

Brand new mama, knew next to nothing about breastfeeding. This woman has eased so many anxieties I didn’t know I had! I feel very prepared with the basics of the first few weeks and will save this to refer back to when my due date arrives
