The Birthplace at Holy Spirit–A Geisinger Affiliate will offer two free programs to assist new mothers with breastfeeding and pumping beginning in January.

The Breastfeeding Support Group will provide an opportunity to ask questions of and learn from Holy Spirit’s lactation professionals. The first meeting will be held Weds., Jan. 11 from 10 a.m. to noon. The group will meet monthly throughout the year; visit hsh.org/health-resources/events-classes for additional dates. Refreshments will be provided.

The Postpartum Pumping Class is designed for mothers who want to learn how to pump, whether they are going back to work or just want to keep a supply on hand. The lactation team will have pumps available to demonstrate, and can assist attendees in using their own pumps. The first class will be held Mon., Jan. 9 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This class will be offered monthly throughout the year; visit hsh.org/health-resources/events-classes for additional dates.

Both groups will meet in the auditorium at Holy Spirit Hospital, 503 N. 21st St., Camp Hill. To register for either class, call 717-763-BABY (2229).
