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.

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. You may attend each class, or just those that your schedule allows.

The M Health Fairview First Days program is offered at our Minneapolis location and is for soon-to-be moms and moms of infants up to 8 weeks old. Sessions are led by providers and may include lactation consultants, midwives, nurse practitioners, or other clinic staff.
