About the course

In 2019 Mary Duke and I tried out a couple Free Childbirth and breastfeeding basics courses and they were wildly popular! Both classes sold out even after adding extra seats. So in 2020 we are choosing to bring these crash courses back to Bowling Green, Ky.
Childbirth: 6pm - 7pm
Breastfeeding: 7pm - 8pm
Optional Q&A time: 8pm - 8:30pm
