"I 110% would recommend this class to others. I also really encourage spouses to go with to help be a support person and that they learn all the benefits with you. I felt much more empowered after this class. I struggled feeding with my first baby and had some family that tried to get me to feed a bottle instead. My husband and I took this class together before the second baby and it helped so much for him to understand why I wanted to breastfeed and the benefits. This helped me through the process and he helped support me much more even if there was someone trying to tell me to do something else. The journey is much easier when you have strong support and understanding."
"I'm really glad that my husband and I took Becky's class prior to giving birth. It made me more informed and aware of what to expect when it came to nursing which helped answer some unknowns. I highly recommend Becky's class to anyone who is considering breastfeeding. I also recommend working with Becky post-partum. I made the transition from nursing only to exclusively pumping and Becky helped answer all the questions I had about the switch; which bottles to use, how often to pump to help with supply, ways to bottle feed. Every session with Becky made me more confident when it came to feeding my LO."
"I took Lacy Knipper's childbirth education classes and prenatal yoga classes because I knew I wanted a natural birth. Lacy recommended that I go to Becky Franzen's prenatal breastfeeding class before birth because it was so helpful and informational. I took the class and she was absolutely right! It was a great hands-on class where I learned all there was to breastfeeding including how to latch, the benefits of breastfeeding, different nursing positions, how your partner can support you, and more! After my daughter's birth, I struggled with getting a good latch and I turned to Becky again and went to her free milk parties where I met so many other great mama’s and their babies. At the milk parties, we do introductions and nurse our babies together. We do weight checks on the scale to see how much milk they took in, and have mama chats about what’s going well, what we are struggling with and any helpful suggestions we can give. I shared my struggles to latch and Becky was able to help me again. As my daughter turns a year old and I reflect on the past year, I'm so happy to say I went from having little to no knowledge of breastfeeding before Becky’s class, to getting help with issues I had, to now donating my milk to other moms! I cannot thank Becky enough for all that she has done for me and my family! I highly recommend her prenatal breastfeeding class, milk parties, and one-on-one sessions! Thanks for everything, Becky!"
