Breastfeeding Education: 3 hour course Held Saturday’s $90 includes book

This comprehensive lactation program is designed to teach you almost everything you need to know about how to breastfeed successfully. Your instructor, Courtney Farris, is a certified Lactation Education Specialist. Courtney developed this workshop while completing her Masters in Holistic Health Education at John F Kennedy University – surveying almost 200 breastfeeding mamas in order to determine what the current lactation education models might be missing and then creating a program based on the needs of the demographic. In this three-hour class you will learn about establishing a milk supply, signs of a proper latch, coping with engorgement, preventing lactation pathology,  and a brief overview of the benefits of breastfeeding for both mother and baby. We will cover the impact of lifestyle choices on breastfeeding including lactation nutrition, food sensitivities in newborns, colic, in addition to a talk about how caffeine, alcohol, exercise, and other choices affect breastfeeding. Finally, we will discuss topics pertinent to the working mother: maintaining milk supply while working, how to prevent plugged ducts and mastitis, galactogogues that will increase milk supply, the signs of an ill-fitting pump flange, as well as milk storage strategies.
