Breastfeeding Preparation 

Breastfeeding Preparation class can be run 1-2-1 in your home, via skype or you can attend my group class.

We will cover:

  • Why breastfeeding is important

  • How Milk is Made

  • How Supply is set up

  • Instincts and Reflexes in Mum & Baby

  • Birth & Breastfeeding

  • Latching & Attaching

  • Normal Baby Behaviour & What to Expect

  • When things don't go as planned

  • Common Issues in the first few weeks and how to avoid them

  • Reaching your goals / How you see breastfeeding working for you

Breastfeeding - Take Two

Perhaps you had a difficult breastfeeding experience with a previous baby, and are worried about the same issues this time.  Perhaps you fed a previous baby for a very short period of time and didn't reach your breastfeeding goals.  This is a chance to review your previous experiences and to debrief, not just from the the story of what happened, but from the emotional experience which goes with that.  We can identify the causes of any previous difficulties, and suggest ways to avoid difficulties this time round, and to get breastfeeding off to a good start.

This session can be done in your home or via skype, and is a 2 hr session.

 

Complete Perinatal Package

The complete package offers a breastfeeding preparation class and a post natal consultation visit at a discounted rate.  The post natal visit can take place any time in the first 6 months after birth.  

It can allow you to go into your breastfeeding with the peace of mind of a consultation when you need it.  It also makes a wonderful antenatal gift!
