Breastfeeding Workshops

An essential workshop looking at the art of breastfeeding to give you the knowledge and confidence to successfully breastfeed your baby. The workshop is far more in-depth than antenatal classes.

Just as your body is designed to provide for the growing baby in your belly so it is designed to feed this baby once it is born. Your body will provide for ALL of babies needs in the first 6 months or more. It is very rare for a woman to not be able to exclusively feed her baby (95% of woman can!). This workshop will show you that you can do it!

What is covered The advantages of breastfeeding
  How to latch baby correctly
  Feeding positions
  How breastfeeding and milk supply really works
  Challenges you may face and how to overcome them
  The "breastfeeding" dad
  Working and breastfeeding
  And so much more
Who should attend The pregnant couple looking at breastfeeding. The partner is the greatest source of support so it is important for them 
  to learn as much as they can as well. 
  Single moms are also welcome to attend.
  Should your partner not attend that is also alright.
