First Days mom and baby program

Adding a little one to your life results in a lot of questions, from breastfeeding to postpartum recovery. To help you, we’ve designed a series of group lactation visits to answer your questions and more.

The Fairview First Days program is for soon-to-be moms and moms of infants up to 8 weeks old. Learn along with other moms in a fun, caring environment. This also is an opportunity to check your baby's weight and get help with any latching issues. Sessions are led by providers and may include lactation consultants, midwives, nurse practitioners, or other clinic staff. You may attend each class, or just those that your schedule allows.
