Private Breastfeeding Workshop
+ Virtual Support
There's a quote that says that breastfeeding is 90% determination, and 10% milk production. I feel like this might be a slight exaggeration, but I do agree with the sentiment.
Breastfeeding is the biological norm for our species.
It is everything that our babies need from us; milk, closeness, skin-to-skin, comfort and warmth. Once you get into the rhythm of it, it is the ultimate soother for pretty much everything you can think of.
Like anything, it does take a learning-curve at the beginning, but your body IS designed to do this, and with good education and support around you, it is totally possible to rock this!
The components of breastmilk are second to none. Did you know that if your baby gets the sniffles, your nipples recognise that he is sick and changes the components of the milk to help fight the virus?
And, what's even more amazing is, if you are tandem feeding your body knows which child is on which breast and changes the milk accordingly?
Our bodies are seriously amazing!
This breastfeeding workshop is packed full of useful information, handy tips and completely evidence-based. I take the principles of mindfulness too to really weave in how to stay sane in those first few months whilst you both are on that learning curve together.
Ideally, this course is for couples, because as a doula and mother, I can tell you that to successfully breastfeed for a good amount of time, your support system around you is extremely important. This begins with your partner, and so we look into how they can do this in a practical way.
This course includes;
The physiology of lactation
Hormones that help breastfeeding
The Golden Hour after giving birth
Skin-to-skin for Mum AND Dad
The importance of a good latch
Positions and taking care of your body
Nutrition & hydration
How friends and family can help support your journey
As it is a private course, this can be done in the comfort of your own home either at the weekend or an evening (I am also available in the week, if both of you are available!).
For all clients who take this workshop I offer virtual WhatsApp support once the baby is born until 6 weeks postpartum. I am aware of my breadth of knowledge and if I feel that at any point a client needs additional support I refer to a wonderful breastfeeding counsellor here in Jersey if needed.
3 hours + Virtual support until 4 weeks postpartum = £150
How to book this workshop
Connect with me if you'd like to ask more questions, or to book a course. After 6 years of breastfeeding, I can tell you it is a truly amazing thing and has given me so much more appreciation for the power of my body!
I love supporting women on their breastfeeding journey...
"The newborn has only three demands.
They are; warmth in the arms of its mother,
food from her breasts,
and security in the knowledge of her presence.
Breastfeeding satisfies all three."
