You are right that it is a good idea to take a breastfeeding class while you are still pregnant. You'll learn some basics and have more confidence once your baby is born. Additionally, one of the best ways to prepare is to watch another mom breastfeed. Of course not all babies are the same, but it is nice to familiarize yourself with the process. There are also a lot of websites and blogs that focus on breastfeeding -- you can certainly check out my blog!

I would also recommend finding a La Leche League near you and get to know the parents who go there. They are an excellent resource. To find one near you go to www.llli.org and search for your country/state.

Q&A: Prepping to nurse?

My hospital had a breastfeeding support group, soon-to-be moms were welcome to come and talk to the moms there and to watch experienced moms nurse their babies. It was a great help and I started attending only days after we went home from the hospital. That group is what kept me going.
