I was invited to do it by a Health Visitor but tbh I didn't feel the mums-to-be were that interested - it felt rushed and tagged on to another session by which time they were already jaded. Perhaps a post natal session at the hospital, in conjunction with a bfc would have been better. If you contact local NCT they include a bf session in their antenatal course.

Are there any local peer support schemes near to you? I did an 8 week course and now help to support other mums at baby cafe's. Mums who are interested in breastfeeding are linked up with a supporter. Other peer supporters go into the antenatal clinic.
