Re: "What are the best ways, other than taking a class and/or reading a book, to prepare yourself and your body for breastfeeding before you even give birth?" - jonnasue71
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!
