The session covers:
- How to position and latch baby on
- How your body makes milk
- What to expect from your breastfed baby
- What is normal in your baby’s development as it pertains to feeding and sleeping
- Overcoming challenges
- Supporting a breastfeeding mother
- Where to get ongoing support
- Any question you have…
- And more!
Places in the courses are limited to 12 mums and their support person, to ensure that your individual needs are met. I believe it is important for a breastfeeding mother’s support person to have a good level of knowledge about breastfeeding and to learn ways to provide practical support.
The course fee is $50 per 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 the courses fill quickly, so book early to avoid disappointment!
