Breastfeeding Workshop For Health Care Professionals

 

An in-depth course for healthcare professionals who come in contact with breastfeeding women (such as pediatricians, obstetricians, nurses, midwives, childbirth educators, lactation consultants in training, doulas). A 6 hour workshop packed with vital information regarding breastfeeding from the first minutes after birth, through the first few days, weeks and months. Topics such as optimal latch, positioning, anatomy and physiology, milk transfer, how to know the baby is getting enough milk, how much does a baby need, breastfeeding challenges, common myths and misconceptions and much more will be covered during this fun, fast paced, energetic class.

A certificate of completion will be given to participants at the end of the workshop. This class also meets DONA’s and other programs’ breastfeeding class requirement as well as some continuing ed requirements. $150. To register, contact me directly through the Contact Me page on this website or email me at breastfeedingsupport@gmail.com or by phone at 917.620.4068.

This is a workshop for any healthcare professional who wants to deepen and broaden their knowledge of breastfeeding. I have more than 15 years of experience in lactation during which I have seen over 10,000 mothers and babies in my practice. I also have the benefit of knowing first hand what happens in terms of lactation in the hospital, birthing center and home births as I have had the good fortune of working in all those settings.

Light refreshments will be provided.
