Join us for an informative and experiential introduction to the principles, techniques and latest research involved in the amazing world of breastfeeding. Meet others working in the field of birth and postpartum support, share resources and insights, and deepen your understanding of how we can best support families in one of the most profound (and potentially challenging) gifts they can give themselves and their babies.

In this thorough 3 hour Fundamentals of Breastfeeding Class for Professionals, participants will learn:

  • Several lesser known health benefits of breastfeeding
  • Anatomy and physiology of the lactating breast

  • Common challenges and how to avoid or address them
  • Improving milk production with placenta, herbs and foods
  • Alternatives to bottle feeding when a baby needs supplemental milk
  • How to support an ambivalent or poorly resourced breastfeeding parent
