Nursing babies under 5 months may attend. You know your baby best. Please keep learning needs (your own as well as others) in mind if you choose to bring your young baby. Mothers often find it difficult to participate fully, especially learning labor-comfort measures or other physical skills, while meeting your baby's needs.
If you prefer for baby and Grandma to spend time together (whether it's part of the time or all), pumping is welcome.

Linda Worzer, BME, IBCLC, AdvCD/ BDT (DONA), our Doula Trainer, is on medical leave through 2019.
