An essential workshop about the Art of Breastfeeding to equip you with the knowledge and confidence to successfully breastfeed your baby.
Laura Sayce, a Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) facilitates the Breastfeeding Workshop. “As a professional Doula (Birth and Postnatal) and as an International Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) I would like to support you through this journey. My aim is to provide parents with helpful information and a variety of solutions for you to try. I approach this through gentle parenting – which I believe is the closest to how nature intended.”
What can you learn from this Breastfeeding Workshop?
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! The workshop is designed for the couple as your partner is your greatest source of support and I think it is vital for them to have all the knowledge they can.”
The course covers topics such as:
- 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.
