Places in our courses are limited to 10 mums and their support person, to ensure that your individual needs are met.

Partners and other support people are encouraged to attend, at no additional cost, as we believe it is important for a breastfeeding mother’s supporters to have a good level of knowledge about breastfeeding and to learn ways to provide practical support.

The course fee is $50 per pregnant woman. However, I don’t want anyone to miss out for lack of finances. If you are keen to enrol but this is too much for you, PLEASE contact me to discuss options!

Places on our courses fill quickly, so book early to avoid disappointment!

Now also offering private classes in the comfort of your home, get in touch for more details. Or you can get together a small group in a  more remote area such as the Kapiti Coast or Wairarapa, and we can discuss the options.
