AdventHealth for Women offers The Baby Place Academy®: Education and Support. Our team is here to prepare you for pregnancy, childbirth and beyond with classes led by registered nurses and certified parent educators. Expecting moms and partners across Central Florida can gain confidence going into parenthood with classes at The Baby Place Academy. The Baby Place Academy will be your village even before your baby arrives. You want to provide nourishment and comfort to your newborn — and breastfeeding does both. You might already know the many benefits: important nutrients, added immunity against infections, lowered allergy risk, and, of course, intimate skin-to-skin bonding. But for a new mother, the experience can present both physical and emotional challenges. Our Breastfeeding Class gives you caring support and careful preparation. The single-session class is taught by an experienced International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® (IBCLC) charged with turning feeding into comfort for both you and your baby. This class provides expert advice and specific instructions on how to get a good start to breastfeeding. You’ll learn the science behind breastfeeding and become familiar with the basics of how to feed your baby.
