Hospital offering breastfeeding class

JASPER — Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center is offering an in-depth breastfeeding class, “Breastfeeding: Getting Started.” During your time of baby preparation, this educational class can help provide an easier transition into motherhood and breastfeeding. It is recommended that both mother and the support person, who will assist the mother, attend the classes as support is important to breastfeeding success.
