Did you know that most babies will breastfeed within an hour of being born? So the best time to learn about breastfeeding is during pregnancy.
To achieve your breastfeeding goals, good preparation is key. In pregnancy you (usually) have more time and energy to educate yourself than after bub is born.
Our lactation consultants can support you, provide up-to-date and evidence based information, teach you skills, and give you the motivation you need for a positive and successful breastfeeding experience.
They offer one-on-one consultations as well as private education sessions.
If you need help with any aspect of breastfeeding after birth, you already know your Lactation Consultant, and she knows about you and your preferences.
The session(s) will cover the following topics:
- Benefits of breastfeeding;
- How breastfeeding works
- The first breastfeed
- Understanding milk supply
- Positioning and attachment
- What to expect from the breastfed baby
- Common challenges and trouble shooting and the role of support people.
- Antenatal hand expressing after 36-37 weeks pregnancy
Plus, there will be time for questions and you go home with helpful handouts for future reference.
2 hour session ($200)
3×45 mins sessions ($225)
Ideal for help with antenatal hand expressing or if you have a specific issue like discussing breastfeeding after breast surgery, inverted nipples, unsuccessful or challenging first breastfeeding experience, previous low milk supply, etc.
45 min session ($100)
