Hospitals: Large local hospitals will have a breastfeeding center with classes and support groups; even if they do not, they will have community education courses; you can also ask for lactation counselors; another resource is your local la leche league.

Hospital of birth: Try calling the hospital your baby was born to see if breast feeding classes are offered. If you have relocated and new to the area, try the closest hospital where they deliver babies. Check with the lactation consultant there and most likely they will have classes for nursing moms. You may also want to check with your pediatrician for other local resources.
