Comments from previous course participants:

“…this course was GREAT!”

“I…love a class when i can learn at least 1 new thing”

“I definitely plan to advocate more for breast feeding. Before this training, I really didn’t care either way what people chose to do. If asked now, I would let a new mother know of all the benefits of nursing.”

“…a very balanced course. It was also nice to do a training that was different and not the same ol’ child development/school readiness type thing.”

“Class was well organized and I am glad that I took it”
