Read The Book
Alyssa's book, Breastfeeding Without Birthing, is designed to work hand-in-hand with this site to create the most comprehensive resource available for parents who have not birthed (or at least have not just given birth) who want to breastfeed their babies.
Take The Class
Attending a class is a great way to introduce yourself and your partner to breastfeeding-without-birthing. It also is a great opportunity for professionals who support these special parents to grow in their knowledge base.
