I wanted to thank Best Start for the back to work breastfeeding class that I took. I don't know what I would of done without that class. When I would think about going back to work and pumping and did not think it was possible but Jane suggested her class and it was a godsend. I went back to work April 4th and here it is almost the first of Aug and I am still pumping. The class had all the information I need to allow me to still give my daughter what I wanted her to have and also be able to work full time. The most important thing I learned is to pump only when needed and at night and on weekends put that pump away and breastfeed as much as you can because that will keep up the process. Thanks Jane for everything. My baby has been so healthy.

Melissa B"I went back to work at 10 weeks post-partum and took the BF & W class a few weeks prior. It benefitted me by showing me ways to make pumping my milk easier and getting more milk. This class made the transition back to work easier because I had a better idea of what to expect and know my rights in the workplace. I recommend this class to others and still benefit from Best Start's continuous breastfeeding support!" Taylor H.

"The back to work class benefitted me by getting me familiar & comfortable with the pumping equipment. I knew wat to expect which made the pumping process easier. I encourage others new mothers to attend because they can interact with other mothers who were going back to work too and get a boost of confidence." P.J. Pyrchla
